After the elections in May 2018, Birmingham City Council will be represented by 101 councillors serving 69 wards comprising of 37 single member wards, 32 two member wards.

At the same time, councillors will be elected to the Sutton Coldfield Town Council, and also New Frankley in Birmingham Parish Council.
