Elections to North Tyneside Metropolitan Council took place on 22 May 2014. They coincided with other local elections happening in the UK that day, as well as the 2014 election to the European Parliament.

North Tyneside Council is elected "in thirds" which means one councillor from each three-member ward is elected each year with a fourth year when the mayoral election takes place.

One third of the councillors were elected in 2010 and the results below are compared to the last time the seats were fought, in 2012, or at by-elections in the case of Riverside and Wallsend.
