Map of the results of the 2010 Southwark council election. Conservatives in blue, Labour in red and Liberal Democrats in yellow.

Elections for Southwark Council were held on 6 May 2010. The 2010 General Election and other local elections took place on the same day.

In London council elections the entire council is elected every four years, opposed to some local elections where one councillor is elected every year for three of the four years. Southwark has 21 wards, each electing 3 councillors giving a total number of seats as 63.

The Labour Party gained overall control, which they had previously had until 2002,[1] replacing the previous Lib Dem-Tory coalition. The Labour Party increased their vote substantially, which it was suggested was caused by the high turnout.[2] Turnout was approximately double that of the 2006 elections, due to the general election being held on the same day.

Green London Assembly member Jenny Jones lost her seat.
