The results were: 116 votes for Clair Macdonald, Indy Monmouth; 116 votes for Lyn Tanner, Welsh Labour; 214 Sue White, Welsh Conservatives.

There were 166 postal votes and 282 voters at the polling station out of a possible 1,610 voters eligible to vote in the ward, with a total turnout of 27.83 per cent. There were two spoiled ballot papers.
