The 2012 Gloucester City Council local elections took place on 3 May 2012 to elect members of Gloucester City Council in Gloucester, England. This was on the same day as other United Kingdom local elections were taking place across the country. At the previous Gloucester local elections in 2011, the first after the 2010 general election, of which the result was a hung parliament and subsequently, a Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition government was formed, both parties shared similar success, winning 9 out of the total 11 seats available (the Conservatives with 6 seats, the Liberal Democrats with 3).
The city-wide results were as follows:
|Party name||Seats won||Percentage of votes|
|The Conservative Party||4||37%|
|The Labour Party||4||33%|
|UK Independence Party||0||4%|
|The Green Party||0||2%|
|Trade Unionists and Socialists Against Cuts||0||< 1%|
Turnout for the election was 32%, down 7% from the previous year. 7 wards from the 2011 elections were contested once more in the 2012 elections. Out of these 7 wards, only 1 gain was made, with Labour gaining control of the Barton and Tredworth seat from the Conservative incumbent.
