Seats up

English local authority elections take place on four-year cycles. Some councils have a single poll once every four years when all seats are up for election, others have polls in three of the four years with a third of the seats up each time and a few have polls for half the seats every two years. Sometimes all-up elections take place following boundary changes.

Details of seats up this time will appear here in due course.
