Councillors are democratically accountable to residents of the city and their ward. The overriding duty of Councillors is to the whole community, but they have a special duty to their constituents, including those who did not vote for them.

Approximately a third of the Council is elected every year over a period of three years (there are no elections every fourth year). The next elections are in 2018.

In wards where there are only two Councillors, there will be elections in two out of four years.

A Councillor’s term of office is usually four years before the seat is subject to elections again.




(From Monday 7th May, 2018) Hull is divided into 21 wards represented by 57 ward Councillors and has a Labour controlled Council, and there are:

31 Labour Councillors

24 Liberal Democrat Councillors

2 Conservative & Unionist Councillors
