Kent County Council

A stunning night for Folkestone and Hythe Conservatives saw all 6 County Counil seats in the constituency return Conservatives for the first time. Folkestone North East and Folkestone West were both Conservative gains, while majorities were increased by the Conservative incumbents in Folkestone South, Hythe and Romney Marsh and Susan Carey successfully defended the Elham Valley seat vacated by the retiring Conservative John Palmer.

The result in Folkestone West was particularly fitting as it saw the Conservative Leader of Shepway Counil oust the former Lib Dem Leader of the same authority after 14 years in the seat. Congratulations to Robert Bliss, whose election the Morehall team fought so hard to achieve.
