The 2002 Southend-on-Sea Council election took place on 2 May 2002 to elect members of Southend-on-Sea Unitary Council in Essex, England. One third of the council was up for election and the Conservative party stayed in overall control of the council.


After the election, the composition of the council was

  • Conservative 33
  • Labour 11
  • Liberal Democrat 7
  • Campaign

    The election saw a group of 7 campaigners stand as independent candidates in the election. They described themselves as "the magnificent seven" and were standing in protest against plans to widen Prioy Crescent and to move St Laurence Church in Eastwood.

    Election result

    The results saw no seats change hands so the Conservatives kept control as a result with 35 of the 51 seats on the council.
