Lewes Town CouncillorsYour representatives
The Council comprises eighteen elected members – six representing each of three electoral wards (Bridge, Castle, and Priory), and it employs fourteen staff (8 full-time). This will change in 2019, due to a review by the Local Government Boundary Commission, when a fourth Ward will be introduced – Lewes Central – although there will still be 18 seats in total. Council meets approximately every five weeks and often creates working-parties for large projects or short tasks. These can co-opt additional members from the community.
