The Tories have retained control of Shepway District Council, winning 22 seats against seven for Ukip and one for Labour.
The first Labour councillor since 2007 has also been elected.
The Conservatives had almost 90% of seats before the election when there were 46 council places as opposed to the present 30 due to the redrawing of boundaries.
Shepway Tory leader David Monk said: "The council membership is still more than 70% Conservative.
"But I hope Ukip will be able to support us in the running of the council. I don't see them being and aggressive opposition.
"I am surprised that people vote for Ukip in a council election because the party's two biggest beefs are immigration and Europe, which a council can do nothing about.''
Frank McKenna, chairman of Folkestone and Hythe Ukip, said: “Until now we have just two councillors and now we have seven so are properly represented in Shepway.
“I think we gained support not so much on national issues but on local issues such has dog fouling and waste collections.’’
One newly-elected Ukip member was Damon Robinson, who at the age of 69 has become a councillor for the first time.
He knocked out Conservative Peter Monk, David Monk's son, in the Cheriton ward by just six votes.
He is a retired employee of British Nuclear Fuels.
He said: “We are still a very young party and hopefully be effective and useful in this council.’’
Cllr Robinson had knocked out incumbent Conservative Peter Monk, David Monk's son, by just six voters.
He said: “I was sad for Peter Monk as he had lost by such a narrow margin.’’
The first result declared was for Hythe Rural where Conservatives Michael Lyons and Paul Peacock were elected with 1,633 and 1,504 votes respectively.
In Sandgate and West Folkestone, Tories Jan Holben and Rory Love got in with 1,348 and 1,019 votes.
Ukip's first success came with Len Laws in Walland and Denge Marsh.
That was followed by Carol Sacre and Frank McKenna in East Folkestone, where Claire Jeffrey also became the first Labour member since 2007. She had come third in Thursday's General Election in the Folkestone and Hythe.
She now said: "I am thrilled that Labour has a voice in Shepway again but I am looking to work with other parties in the council for the good of local people.''
The council's only Liberal Democrat, Lynne Beaumont, was voted out of the council in the Broadmead ward having already seen her party flattened in the General Election.
She said: "After looking at what happened nationally I came here expecting to walk out with nothing. This reflected the national mood of voters.
"We need to come back and since this morning our national membership has gone up by 3,000. It was like when the SNP lost its referendum on independence. We have to rebuild and carry on.
"People have voted as they want and it has been ruthless but we have to respect how people vote."
Ms Beaumont had been voted out in the 2011 election and returned in a by-election the next year.
Long standing People First candidates Brian Copping and Paul Marsh also lost their seats.
