Lewes Town CouncillorsYour representatives - (this page is under construction - all recently-elected Councillors will appear here shortly)
The Council comprises eighteen elected members representing each of four electoral wards (Bridge (5), Castle (4), Central (1),and Priory(8), and it employs fourteen staff (8 full-time). This changed in 2019, due to a review by the Local Government Boundary Commission, when the fourth Ward (Central) was introduced although there are still 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.
