The 2018 Croydon Council election took place on 3 May 2018 to elect members of Croydon Council in England.[1] This was on the same day as other London local elections.

This election was the first fought on new ward boundaries in Croydon. The total number of seats remains the same, however the number of wards has increased by 4, from 24 to 28.

Campaign[edit]

The campaign officially began on 27th March 2018.[2]

The Conservative Party released their manifesto first, on the 2nd April, entitled "A Council that's on your side". The manifesto includes policies such as planning committee reform, an immediate pause on the council's building company, Brick by Brick, and active Fly-Tip patrols.

The Labour manifesto was launched on the 7th April, with many street stalls in district centres around the borough. The Labour manifesto was called "Labour's plan for Croydon". It heavily echoed the party's 2014 manifesto, 'Ambitious for Croydon', and largely reflected a continuation of existing council policies.
