All the candidates standing in the Tameside council local elections 2022 by ward

There are 53 candidates standing in Tameside’s local elections next month when one seat will be up for grabs in each of the borough’s 19 wards. The council is currently dominated by Labour, who hold 51 of its 57 seats, with the remainder taken by the five-strong Conservative group and a lone Green.

Despite Labour’s stranglehold on the authority, councilors in the Hyde wards may fear a backlash from voters over the Clean Air Zone controversy, albeit the plan is now expected to be scrapped in its current form. The contentious Godley Green garden village plans could also cause a headache for Labor in the Hyde wards.

Council leader Brenda Warrington says the 2,000-home development ‘will set an example’, but more than 4,000 people have signed a petition against the scheme. Some seats – including Ashton Hurst and Denton South – are a straight shootout between Labor and the Tories, with no other parties standing.

But the Conservatives will also be wary of voters using the local elections to signal their displeasure over national controversies such as ‘Partygate’, and the growing cost of living crises. The Green Party – who are fielding candidates in all but six seats – will be hoping to capitalize on local and national discontent and increase their numbers on the council.

They are not the only minority party looking to make an impact on May 5, however. Reform UK has Barbara Mitchison standing in Denton North East, while Hattie Thomas will fly the flag for the Women`s Equality Party in Mossley.
