The council is composed of 58 councillors elected every four years; each represents an area called a ward (most of which are represented by more than one councillor). The overriding duty of councillors is to the whole borough community, but they have a special duty to their constituents, whether they voted for them or not.

The last local elections took place on Thursday 5 May 2022. The next local elections are due to be held on 7 May 2026.

Bromley Council is under Conservative control, with the 58 seats on full council split as follows: 

Conservatives - 35, Labour - 12, Liberal Democrats - 5, Chislehurst Matters - 3, Biggin Hill Independents - 2, Independent - 1
