Borough elections 2015, Southend-on-Sea – the headlines
May 8, 2015 Leave a comment
So, the local election ballot papers have been counted in Southend-on-Sea, and here is a summary.
So, an overall second place for Labour across the borough (and two second places in the Westminster elections). Three first places (two in the East, one in the West) and four runners-up ((one in the East, three in the West).
The most marginal victories:
31 St Laurence (UKIP over Conservative)
51 Milton (Conservative over Labour)
165 Westborough (Labour over Conservative)
This leaves the chamber looking like this:
11 Independent Group
4 Liberal Democrats
3 UKIP Local Group
1 Unaligned UKIP
Therefore it is still a story of no overall control.
