United Kingdom local elections, 1994

Local elections were held in the United Kingdom in 1994. The results showed a continued decline for the governing Conservatives (now in their 15th successive year of government at Westminster), with the third placed party, the Liberal Democrats, as the main beneficiaries.

The main opposition, the Labour Party, gained 44 seats, bringing their number of councillors to 9,257. Their projected national vote share was 40%, a 1% increase on the 1993 local elections. The Conservative Party lost 516 seats and were left with 7,286 councillors. Their projected national vote share was 28%, a 3% fall since the previous local elections in 1993. The Liberal Democrats gained 428 seats and had 4,551 councillors after the elections.
