Nettleham, Riseholme and Grange-de-Lings have voted for value for money as the local Conservatives made gains across West Lindsey and won increased support across the Nettleham Ward, strengthening their control of west Lindsey District Council.
The local Conservative team won one of two seats in the Nettleham ward, gaining one seat from the Liberal Democrats from the previous elections in 2011. Giles McNeill, Conservative District Councillor for the Nettleham Ward, said:
“I would like to thank all the Conservative team and local people for their support, particularly all those who helped directly with the campaign. I am looking forward to continuing to represent residents of Nettleham, Riseholme and Grange-de-Lings.”
Cllr. Jeff Summers, Conservative Leader of West Lindsey District Council, added,
“Today’s Conservatives offer a value for money service – efficient front-line services without council tax hikes. Through listening to people and hard work we have attracted people who do not usually vote but who have seen how much we are committed to West Lindsey.
“We are focusing on what matters – delivering for local people, supporting local businesses, and freezing council tax. In the election campaign the local Conservative team promised to take action on unsuitable developmnet and already a number of homes on Lodge Lane, Nettleham have been refused planning permission.”
