Bad news for the residents of Burgess Hill and Mid Sussex as the Conservative party won all 54 seats on Mid Sussex District Council.
The 54 councillor shut-out means that there will be no scrutiny of the council's actions, no debates and they'll not have to face a grilling from opposing councillors.
If you have an issue with the district council and their decisions, you'll not have any councillors to speak up on your behalf.
Last term, the Lib Dems held three of the seats on behalf of Burgess Hill, they've now been wiped out.
The 12 Burgess Hill seats on the Distict Council were won by the Tories with 48.75% of the vote, meaning that the majority of voters did not want them in.
Of the six Burgess Hill Wards, only Dunstall and Leylands had more Conservative voters than non-Tory voters.
