I've noticed in Cheshire East the main parties are losing seats on town and borough councils to independents and independent groups. For instance, the previously Lib Dem Macclesfield East seat on Cheshire East council has gone to an Independent. However, it's not just the unpopular parties losing seats. The Conservatives are very popular in Wilmslow and Alderley Edge, yet two Independent groups called Alderley Edge First and Residents of Wilmslow have taken seats from the Conservatives. Is this kind of thing happening nationwide or is it only happening in a small number of towns?
