Harlow Council Election Results: Labour retain power but big inroads for Conservatives

By Adam Spartley

LABOUR retained power at Harlow Council but it was a night that all parties could be positive about.

Labour gained Bush Fair but will have been disappointed to have not gained Staple Tye. That will be a blow to the newly installed prospective parliamentary candidate (PPC) Laura McAlpine. Be in no doubt that a PPC who fails to win a ward will be jumped upon by her opponents.

But the bottom line is that they are back in power.

Interview with leader Emma Toal.

The Conservatives will be overjoyed at winning Staple Tye. They saw a swing of 11% and will go back into the chamber with a real spring in their step.

Interview with deputy leader, Cllr Joel Charles.

UKIP lost their two seats they were defending but with their vote hovering around the 100 mark they will be encouraged.

The Harlow Alliance Party
will be very pleased at polling 193, 148 and 84 in their first election.

Congratulations to all Labour candidates that stood, ours was a campaign full of positivity, energy and pride, offering Harlow residents the chance of a better future for the town. Let's keep that going as we fan out across the town listening to concerns and keeping visible whether there is an election coming up or not. I'm deeply proud of you all and even more proud to be a tiny part of this great movement. Right. Who's up for a bit more?

I would like to congratulate Mrs Harvey on her success last night, gaining Bush fair. I would like to thank all the Residents of Bush fair for electing me in back in 2014, it has been very rewariding to of been the local councillor for the Residents of Bush fair and Harlow. I am glad that I was able to be there and to be the voice for my number one priority and that is the residents of Bush fair and Harlow. I will still be around to be there for you all and as the Terminator famously said, I will be back. Once again thank you to you all for putting your trust and faith in me and electing me back in 2014 to be your local councillor for a great and rewarding four years. From Dan long of ukip Harlow.
