The 2008 Norwich City Council election took place on 1 May 2008 to elect members of Norwich City Council in England. One third of seats were up for election. This was on the same day as other local elections.

The Green Party won the most votes across Norwich for the first time, and won a plurality of the seats up for election. This marked the first time that the Greens had won a plurality of the votes and seats in a local authority election.

However, as only 13 of 39 council seats were up for election, Labour remained the largest party as a result of winning 4 seats in this election and already holding 11 existing seats.

The 2008 election is, to date, the last election to see any member of the Conservative Party elected to Norwich City Council.

Election result

After the election, the new makeup of the City Council was:

  • Labour 15 (-)
  • Green 13 (+3)
  • Liberal Democrat 6 (-5)
  • Conservative 5 (+2)
