English councils are up-to-date. NI to come.

This website collects the names, parties and wards of all UK councillors directly from council websites roughly on a monthly basis and provides the data for the public domain (CSVs above). It also includes information on vacant council seats (by-elections) and local election rounds.

The site covers all English, Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish councils and Isles of Scilly.

NOC councils are counted under the party of the mayor or the largest coalition party.
