Stand for Council

Do you want to make a difference in your local area? Are you passionate about wanting to help people?


Are you fed up of Birmingham Labour’s seeming inability to collect the bins? About the condition of the roads? Or maybe you’ve seen the horrific stories about the state of social housing in the city?


Then we want YOU to consider standing for Council! 


Birmingham Local Conservatives are looking for members who are interested in standing as City Council Candidates in the 2026 Birmingham City Council Local Elections, when every seat in the City will be up for election.


We’re looking to start campaigning as early as possible by building local support for our candidates. You’ll receive ongoing training and support over the next 3 years to help prepare you for your time as a candidate, and as a councillor.  This will include everything from the daily business of dealing with case work, to running your own campaign both on social media and on the doorstep.


If you’d like more information, or to have a conversation with me about the role, please get in touch with If you’d like to apply to stand as a City Council Candidate, then please fill in the application form found at the bottom of this page, email it to .
