The Conservatives dominated the local elections in Northwood and Northwood Hills last month, as the party increased their number of seats in the London Borough of Hillingdon from 42 to 44.
In Northwood Hills the Conservatives swept the board with all three elected candidates coming from the party. Those elected were Jonathan Bianco, Duncan Flynn and John Morgan.
Each received more than 2,000 votes and were considerably ahead of Labour’s Dee Stuart who finished fourth, and subsequently missed out on election, with 701 votes.
In total 8,925 votes were cast in Northwood Hills which represented 38.2 per cent of those eligible to do so.
Elected candidate Duncan Flynn was delighted with how it the election went and highlighted on social media how the gap between the Conservatives and Labour had grown. He said: “I’m delighted to have been re-elected with my fellow Hillingdon Conservative colleagues as a councillor in Northwood Hills.
“Conservative majority in Northwood Hills went up from 204 in 2014 to 1,300. A victory for a positive agenda of putting residents first.”
In Northwood it was a similar story as Conservatives dominated proceedings. Carol Melvin, Richard Lewis and Scott Seaman Digby, all Conservative, were elected with more than 2,000 votes each.
There was a significant gap to the next candidate, Linda Read from the Labour party, who earned just shy of 500 votes.
