Map of the results of the 2010 Leeds council election. Labour in red, Liberal Democrats in yellow, Conservatives in blue and Morley Borough Independent in dark green.

The Leeds City Council election took place on 6 May 2010, the same day as the General Election, to elect members of City of Leeds Metropolitan Borough Council in West Yorkshire, England. Since the last election, there had been a number of by-elections with the Conservatives gaining a Temple Newsam seat from Labour, and after a brief stint sat as an Independent, Kabeer Hussain's return to the Liberal Democrats was cut short by his sudden death, with Labour gaining his vacated Hyde Park & Woodhouse seat in the ensuing by-election. One third of the council was up for election and with support from the two Green Party councillors the Labour party took minority control of the council from the Conservative-Liberal Democrat-Morley Borough Independent Coalition.[1][2][3]
