Former city council leader Marco Cereste comfortably held onto his seat in Hampton Vale.
The Conservatives continue to hold all three seats in the ward.
Mr Cereste said: "I'm absolutely over the moon. I moved into a new ward two years ago and only managed to win by 30 votes. I've taken that majority to 230 votes so I'm over the moon and I only have the people of Hampton to thank.
"They've really turned out to support me. They are wonderful people and it's a wonderful place and I'm absolutely delighted to return to be their councillor.
"I've really enjoyed being a ward councillor. I haven't done really great things but I've spent a lot of time helping my constituents with the problems that they have. They are important to them."
Marco CERESTE (Conservative) - 529
Mohammed MUNIR (Labour and Co-operative) - 292
Nicola MILLS (Liberal Democrat) - 121
Greg GUTHRIE (Green) - 66
