David Cameron says his party's losses in the local polls show that "people want us to deliver" - adding that the party will not do a pact with Ukip ahead of next year's general election.
The Prime Minister said the Conservatives would be working "flat out" to deliver answers on issues that are "frustrating" people, like immigration and welfare.
Questioned on any potential pact with Ukip ahead of next year's vote, Mr Cameron said: "We are the Conservative Party: we don't do pacts and deals.
"We are fighting all out for an all out majority at the next election."
UKIP's successes in the local elections have raised the possibility of them winning a Westminster seat at the general election.
A year ahead of the general election, Ed Miliband's party is seeing only patchy support in areas it should expect to gain ground.
UKIP are likely to make Rotherham a key target for 2015 after a storming result in the local elections.
