Voters in Newcastle have been going to the polls on 2024's local election day to choose their councillors.

On what is a bumper polling day across the region that also includes the historic North East mayor election, Newcastle is one of the five areas in Tyne and Wear staging local council votes. You can find all the results on our dedicated local elections page here.

A frantic election night in Newcastle saw the city elect its first Conservative councillor in 32 years and its first ever Greens. In a night of high drama at Northumbria University’s Sport Central, Tory Doc Anand defeated the Lib Dems in Gosforth to claim his party’s first success in Newcastle since 1992.

Khaled Musharraf and Nick Hartley were overjoyed to become the city’s first two Green councillors, taking seats off Labour in Elswick and Byker respectively. Labour retains its majority on the council, now holding 45 of its 78 seats – a net loss of two on the night.

The ruling party also lost seats to the Lib Dems in North Jesmond and West Fenham, but made gains against them in Castle and from the Newcastle Independents in Lemington. Turnout was 37%. Our widget below will update on local election night as Newcastle results are declared - and you can also search it by postcode or council name to see results for other councils.
