It was an comfortable hold for Liberal Democrat Andrew Bond in Gunthorpe.
It was the first election since the other two councillors in the ward had left the Lib Dems to sit as independents.
Mr Bond said: "I'm very proud. I plan on tackling local speeding as I promised, I plan on cleaning the litter up, I plan on removing the fly-tipping and just keeping my promises to my residents."
