The Court of Common Council is the primary decision-making body of the City of London Corporation. It meets nine times per year. Most of its work is carried out by committees. Elections are held at least every four years. It is largely composed of independent members although the number of Labour Party Common Councilmen in 2017 grew to five out of a total of 100.[1] In October 2018, the Labour Party gained its sixth seat on the Common Council with a by-election victory in Castle Baynard ward.[2]

Court of Common Council elected March 2017[edit]

Map of the results of the City of London Corporation election, 2017. Each ward has several boxes, each representing an elected councillor. Boxes are coloured according to the party affiliation of the elected councillors, and the order in which they were elected - so for instance in Portsoken the two Labour councillors received the most votes. Wards are coloured in relation to the party/group that received the most votes there - so for instance in Portsoken, whilst 2 Labour candidates topped the poll, Independent candidates received a majority of the vote. In wards coloured dark grey no contests took place, and councillors were elected uncontested. Red represents Labour, Blue represents Temple & Farringdon Together, and grey represents Independents.
