Two Tories have been returned for the Horsham District Council ward of Bramber, Upper Beeding and Woodmancote.
David Coldwell was re-elected alongside newcomer Ben Staines, who will replace Jim Goddard as he stepped down before the election.
Mr Staines said: “I think the result is brilliant. I just hope that I can do a good job for all the people who elected me.
“One of my priorities will be ensuring there is sustainable development and I will work with the parish on their neighbourhood plans.”
