London borough councils by political control following election. Councils that are Labour are in red, Conservative in blue, Liberal Democrat in yellow and no overall control in black.

Local government elections took place in London, and some other parts of the United Kingdom on Thursday 6 May 2010. Polling stations were open between 7am and 10pm.

Despite losing 6 Parliamentary seats in London in the General Election conducted on the same day, London Labour's share of the vote, council seats and control of Councils rose substantially. 10 councils swung to Labour control, and the party gained 190 council seats. Support for the London Conservatives in the capital declined by 3%, with the party losing 3 councils and 68 councillors. The London Liberal Democrats increased their vote share slightly but lost 70 councillors, as well as losing control of Richmond upon Thames council to the Conservatives.

The success of minor parties in the 2006 elections was not repeated, and the smaller parties were almost wiped out. The British National Party, Christian Peoples Alliance and Socialist Party lost all of their seats, while the London Green Party lost 10 of their 12 seats and Respect lost 14 out of 15. In total, 21 candidates from minor parties were elected, 43 fewer than in 2006.

All London borough council seats were up for election. Mayoral contests were also held in the London Boroughs of Hackney, Lewisham, and Newham. The previous Borough elections in London were in 2006.
