The percentages of vote share for each party -

46.7% Conservative (2013 = 34.9%)
12.5% UKIP (28.2%)
10.7% Labour (13.1%)
10.5% Liberal Democrat (11.3%)
9.2% Green (8.9%)
10.3% Others (3.6%)

Thus, Conservatives up (+11.8%),Greens up(+0.3%). UKIP down (-15.7%), Labour down(-2.4%), Liberal Democrats down (-0.7%)

In summary, the Conservatives gained from UKIP, whilst the other main parties were more or less static in the support they attracted.

Rochford District, in the last twenty years, has been Labour-led. Now, there are no councillors from Labour on the council.

The opposition to Conservatism is split, thus making their task somewhat easier. Also, Conservative supporters appear much more easily persuaded to actually vote.
