Leeds City Council is the local authority for the City of Leedsmarker metropolitan district of West Yorkshire, England.

The city council was established in 1974, with the first elections being held in advance in 1973, under the Local Government Act 1972.

Political composition

The council is composed of 99 councillors, three for each of the city's wards. It is currently under no overall control, and is run by a coalition of the Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and Morleymarker Borough Independents. The leaders of the Conservatives (Andrew Carter) and Liberal Democrats (Richard Brett) take turns to hold the office of Leader for six months. It was under no overall control until 1976, when the Conservatives took control until 1979, when it returned to no overall control; from 1980 to 2004 it was under Labour control. Elections are usually by thirds: 2004 saw all seats up for election due to boundary changes.
