Results[edit]

The election saw the Conservatives remain in overall control of the council after winning 13 of the 15 seats which were contested. They gained Eastbrook from the Liberal Democrats having lost it in a double vacancy at the 2010 elections, but this gain was offset by the loss of Cokeham to Labour, who thus gained their first representation on the council since 2006. In addition Labour saw their vote share rise by more than 12% across the district, whilst the UK Independence Party (UKIP) also saw their vote share increase. The Liberal Democrats were the main losers, seeing their vote fall by 14%, pushing their into fourth place, behind UKIP.
