Lincolnshire County Council elections: All the results locally as Tories retain control
The Tories have retained control of Lincolnshire County Council in the 2021 elections.
Leader of Lincolnshire County Council Martin Hill, who retained his Folkingham seat, said his party retaining control of the authority was “a resounding success” for the Conservatives.
The Tory group passed the 36 seat mark, giving them overall control of the council following the local elections yesterday (Thursday, May 6).
Coun Hill said: “This means we have a manifesto which we will then deliver for the public of Lincolnshire and we have a stable situation of the county council and can continue the running of it as a Conservative council.
“Thank you for giving the Conservatives once again a resounding thumbs up, we will work hard for you and take the lessons learned so far.”
He promised to move forward on tackling potholes and fly-tipping as well as campaigning for more funding for the authority.
