Also returning are councillors Richard Blagdon and William Bowles.
One of four new faces winning a seat is Helen Swift, who took an interest in politics and ran for council largely due to the water controversy. SueAnn Peckford-Spencer and Kevin Thorne also claimed seats. Newcomer John Savoury won the highest number of votes.
