PUBLISHED: 11:01 03 May 2019 | UPDATED: 11:12 03 May 2019
The Conservative Party have lost overall control of Tendring District Council in the first election since a review of the council’s boundaries.
Members were elected to 31 of the 32 new wards on the council which now has 48 rather than 60 councillors.
On the night the Conservatives took 16 seats, Labour won six , the Liberal Democrats two, while nine seats were won by Independents.
There were also successes for the Tendring First group who took four seats, Holland-On-Sea and Eastcliff Matters who took three and the Foundation Party who took their first seat on the council.
The vote on the St Osyth Ward was postponed following the death of Conservative candidate, Anita Bailey.
Elections for this area will now be held on May 23.
Ian Davidson, Returning Officer for the elections and TDC Chief Executive, thanked everyone for a smooth election.
“I would like to pay tribute to the hard-working staff who made the election process run smoothly, including those who were counting votes into the small hours,” Mr Davidson said.
“I look forward to meeting all the newly-elected and returning councillors and working with them over the next four years.”
