The coat of arms of East Sussex

East Sussex is a county in South East England. It is bordered by the counties of Kent, Surrey and West Sussex and, to the south, by the English Channel.

The ancient kingdom of Sussex had separate county administrations since the 12th century, with the county town of the eastern division being Lewes [1]. This situation was formalised by Parliament in 1865, and the two parts were given distinct elected county councils in 1889 under the Local Government Act 1888.

In East Sussex there were three self-administered county boroughs: Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings. In 1974 the East Sussex was made a ceremonial county also, and the three county boroughs became districts within the county. At the same time the western boundary was altered, so that the Mid Sussex region (including Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath) was transferred to the administrative county of West Sussex.

In 1997, Brighton & Hove became a self-administered unitary authority and was eventually granted city status in 2000.

The Beach Front

Brighton and Hove is a unitary authority and city on the south coast of England.

It was formed as a unitary authority on 1 April 1997 by the merger of the East Sussex districts of Brighton and Hove. It immediately applied for and was granted borough status, which was followed by an award of city status by letters patent in 2000, as the joint winner of a competition to mark the Millennium. Thus Brighton & Hove is not part of the non-metropolitan county of East Sussex, but it is still part of the ceremonial county of East Sussex.
