Candidates await Local Election results
The result for Little Stour and Adisham, along with the other 20 Canterbury City Council wards, is being counted at Westgate Hall, Canterbury and will be announced later today (most likely this afternoon).
Results will appear first on the live results page of the council's website.
Prior to today, Adisham was held by the Conservatives with a 198 majority - the 2019 turnout was 43.71%.
It's anticipated the draft Local Plan will prove to be of high significance to the results, not just in Adisham but multiple villages affected by smaller developments or where farmland and green belt would be lost to the proposed south-eastern bypass (funded by developments R1 and R20), along with the traffic zoning scheme in the city centre.
There are 39 seats overall and in 2019, the Conservatives had control of the council with 23 seats to Labour's 10, and 6 for the Liberal Democrats (there have been three by-elections since).
20 seats are needed for a majority, otherwise the council will have no overall control.
Councillors elected today will serve a four year term.
