The results saw the council remain without any party having a majority.[3] The Conservatives remained the largest party with 15 seats despite losing 1 seat to the Community Campaign (Hart) (CCH).[4] Christopher Axam gained Fleet Courtmoor for the CCH after winning 828 votes, compared to 758 for the Conservatives.[5] This meant the CCH had 6 seats on the council, while the Liberal Democrats held the seats they had been defending to remain with 12 councillors.[3] Overall turnout in the election was 35.85%.[6]

Following the election a Conservative bid to take control of the council failed with the existing Liberal Democrat, Community Campaign (Hart) and independent coalition continuing after a 20-15 vote.[7]
