Map of the results of the 2010 Coventry election. Conservatives in blue, Labour in red

Elections for Coventry City Council were held on Thursday 6 May 2010. As the council is elected by thirds, one seat in each of the wards was up for election.

Labour gained five seats (Cheylesmore, Foleshill, Sherbourne, Whoberley, Wyken) from the Conservatives and one seat (St Michael's) from the Socialist Party. As a result, Labour gained control of the council, with 30 out of 54 seats.

A general election was held on the same day, which accounts for the higher turnout.
