The following byelections are known about:

29 March

  • Rooksdown ward (Basingstoke and Deane borough council), caused by the resignation of Conservative councillor Su Peters for personal reasons. The seat runs to 2008.
  • St Chads division (Worcestershire county council), caused by the death of Liberal Party councillor Mike Oborski. The term runs until 2009.
  • St David within (Powys county council), caused by the death of Marilyn Roberts MBE who had no party affiliation. The ward is in Brecon town. This seat will be up for re-election in 2008.
  • Stoke Poges and Farnham Common (Buckinghamshire county council), caused by the death of Rodney Royston (Conservative) on 27 December. As with other county council seats, this vacancy runs to 2009.

The reason this list is almost empty is that a lot of byelections have been held over until May, even in areas where there are no council elections.
