Results of the 2023 election count

Southampton Guildhall interior count floor

Following a review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England which resulted in several ward boundary changes and the creation of a new ward in the city, 51 Southampton City Council seats were up for election on Thursday 4 May 2023.

You can read more information on the outcome of the boundary review.

Due to the abandonment of the Coxford poll, only 48 seats have been filled at this point, meaning 48 councillors – three representing 16 of the city's wards, excluding Coxford – have been elected. A new poll for Coxford ward will be held within 35 working days.

The outcome and results from the polls declared on Thursday 4 May 2023 are as follows:

The Labour group retained control of the council.

  • Labour - 35
  • Conservative - 9
  • Liberal Democrats - 3
  • Green - 1
