Independent 1. Chief city of the West Midlands, and the biggest local authority in the country. The city also includes Sutton Coldfield which would prefer not to be lumped in with (eg) James Turner Street in Winson Green.
Hall Green and Perry Barr wards have byelections on 4 May (held by Labour and the Liberal Democrats respectively). The city council is to move to all-out elections and single-member wards from 2018.
