Tories Stay In Control Of Stratford District Council
Published: 9th May 2010 22:10:36
IN the local government elections the ruling Conservatives on Stratford District Council retained their overall control of the authority.
Twenty of the 53 seats on the council were up for election and the Tories won 11, the Liberal Democrats eight and the Independents one.
The Lib Dems gained one seat from the Conservatives in Stratford Alveston ward when Ian Fradgley, husband of Stratford’s current mayor Cllr Jenny Fradgley—who is also a district councillor—defeated sitting councillor Stuart Beese, the council’s former planning portfolio holder.
But the Tories won the previously Lib Dem-held ward of Kinwarton, thus leaving the political balance intact. The Conservatives now have 31 seats, the Lib Dems 20 and the Independents two.
