The 2014 Greenwich Council election took place on 22 May 2014 to elect members of Greenwich Council in England.[1] This was on the same day as other local elections.

At the 2014 elections, Labour won 43 seats (+3) and the Conservatives won 8 (-3). An Eltham North by-election on 10 November 2016 saw the Conservatives gain a seat off Labour with an 11% swing in their favour. This meant the opposition on the council increased to 9.

Turnout across the borough was 37.25%.[2]
