Here’s my coverage of all the local council by-election results in Britain, updated each week as the results come in.
I include all principal authority by-elections (i.e. borough, district, county and unitary – plus the City of London and, if there were to be a by-election there, the Council of the Isles of Scilly).
See my post “The danger in celebrating parish and town council wins for your own party” for the reasons I generally avoid covering town, parish or community council by-elections.

For the annual rounds of local elections, see my LocalBase set of annual council election results.
