The 2010 Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council election took place on 6 May 2010 to elect members of Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council in England. This was on the same day as other local elections and a general election. One councillor was elected in each ward for a four-year term so the councillors elected in 2010 last stood for election in 2006. Each ward is represented by three councillors, the election of which is staggered, so only one third of the councillors was elected in this election. After the election the council stayed in no overall control but the Conservative minority administration was replaced with a coalition between Labour and the Liberal Democrats.[1]

Brighouse Councillor Joyce Cawthra left the Conservative Party and became an Independent in December 2010 due to her not being selected by the party to stand in the next election.[2]
