London Elections 2022 – book your Cratus CPD session today

In the run up to May, Cratus will be on hand to provide insight and advice on the political scene across London.

We will be pulling together weekly summaries on individual London Boroughs and making them available here.

However, if you need a more detailed and tailored readout on what is going on, Cratus is available to provide a briefing session for you and your London team – in person, online or a blended event as preferred.

Led by Osman Dervish and Vanisha Solanki these sessions can be arranged by completing and submitting the form below.

The last set of London local elections in 2018 saw a completely different dynamic. Theresa May was the Prime Minister, The Labour Party was led by Jeremy Corbyn, and the Liberal Democrat Leader was Vince Cable and we were also still in the European Union!

A lot has happened since May 2018, and the local elections in May will be a big electoral test for the Prime Minister in light of the investigations and inquiries into the party-gate scandal.

Both Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer and Lib Dem leader Sir Ed Davey will be hoping to make gains.

There will be elections in all 32 London boroughs and the City of London, with mayoral elections in Croydon, Hackney, Lewisham, Newham, and Tower Hamlets.

Currently Labour controls 21 of the 32 councils and will hope to hold all of them, as well as making gains in Wandsworth and Barnet from the Conservatives. The Liberal Democrats will want to keep control of Kingston-upon-Thames, Richmond-upon-Thames and Sutton. While for the Conservatives, retaining what they have and the potential for gains in Harrow and Sutton will spur them on.
