The results were as follows:
Lib Dem 785
Conservative Clifford Coombes
This gives the Conservatives 16 Councillors, 1 behind the ruling Lib Dems and pushes Labour into 3rd place on the Council.
This a excellent result for Bitterne Park and for the Conservatives. It shows we have a real chance of being the largest party on the Council after the May elections year. Conservatives have been out of power in Southampton since 1984 and the opportunities to improve things in the City are huge.
