The Winchester Result
Conservatives gained 1 from Liberal Democrats (Owslebury & Curdridge).
New council: C 29, LD 23, Ind 4, Lab 1
So the Tories retain overall control by one seat, having scraped home in Whiteley by 19 votes. From a Lib Dem perspective a great improvement on last year and a firm base for next year's elections. All 3 of the Lib Dem gains were in wards within the boundary of the new Winchester parliamentary seat, so good news for our prospective candidate, Martin Tod, too.
