The Hough division was taken by Independent candidate and South Kesteven District Councillor Paul Wood.
Coun Wood said: “I think I won because I communicated with the local people, liaised with the parish council - basically I kept in touch with the local people.
“I’m an independent candidate and I don’t believe in party politics in local government. It’s the people that matter and the area.”
Coun Wood said a priority must be sorting out the potholes in the area.
