The 2008 United Kingdommarker local elections were held on 1 May 2008. These elections took place in 137 Englishmarker Local Authorities and all Welshmarker Councils.

There were also extra-ordinary elections held for four of the new unitary authorities being created, in Northumberlandmarker, County Durham and Cheshiremarker (two councils - Cheshire East and Cheshire West and Chestermarker). Scheduled elections for Penwithmarker in Cornwallmarker, Shrewsbury & Atchammarker in Shropshiremarker, Bedfordmarker and South Bedfordshire in Bedfordshire and five district councils in Cheshire were cancelled, due to the up-coming unitary authorities being established in those counties.
