Both Redbridge’s Labour and Conservative groups will be contesting every single one of the council’s 63 seats at May 3’s local elections.
Six wards – Seven Kings, Goodmayes, Hainault, Cranbrook, Clementswood and Mayfair – will be a straight shoot-out between councillors representing the current Labour administration and the Conservative group’s opposition.
The Liberal Democrats will be fielding 15 candidates while the borough’s Green Party will be represented by 10 election hopefuls.
After a review from the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE), the wards of Ilford Town, Monkhams and Wanstead Park will be served by two councillors.
In 2014, Labour won control of the council for the first time in the borough’s history, taking 35 seats and winning 42pc of the vote.
Redbridge Conservatives won 25 seats with 31pc of the vote, while the Lib Dems took the three remaining seats with 11pc of the overall vote share.
