The move follows the resignation last weekend of Councillor Debbie Shears.
Following his appointment Councillor Hilton praised the hard work of Councillor Shears, saying her dedication had given the group a good foundation.
He added: "Residents want low Council tax, low crime, clean streets and a housing policy that puts local people first."
"Unlike Labour, we won't be letting unelected officers dictate policy. There will be no more fleecing motorists with vicious and unfair parking fines."
