Political control

Since 1964, political control of the council has been held by the following parties:

Throughout most of its history, Camden has been controlled outright by the Labour Party. During that control, Labour's share of the seats has fluctuated significantly. The below chart includes only councillors, not aldermen prior to their abolition in 1978; the presence of aldermen never affected the overall control of the council.

  • Electoral wards

    Electoral wards were established for Camden when it came into existence on 1 April 1965. The first elections of ward councillors took place in 1964. These boundaries were also used for the 1968, 1971 and 1974 elections. For the 1978 elections the ward boundaries were revised in Camden. These boundaries were then also used at the 1982, 1986 and 1990 elections.

    For the May 1994 elections there were some minor adjustments to London borough boundaries, which caused some Camden wards to have small changes in area and population. These boundaries were also used at the 1998 elections. The current ward boundaries came into effect at the May 2002 elections. They were also used at the 2006, 2010, and 2014 elections.
