This website collects the names, parties and wards of all UK councillors directly from council websites roughly on a weekly basis and provides the data for open download. It also includes information on vacant council seats (i.e. by-elections) and local election rounds.

The site covers all English, Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish councils, including the Corporation of the City of London and the Council of the Isles of Scilly.

Click on the council name on any page to see more detailed information.

Where a council is 'No Overall Control' I've also tried to give the coalition running the council, although this may not be up-to-date. In the table below, NOC councils with a mayor are counted under the party of the mayor.
