EAST SUSSEX COUNTY COUNCIL

 

 

East Sussex County Council is the local authority for the non-metropolitan county of East Sussex.

 

The County Council meets at East Sussex County Hall, the authority's headquarters; though there are a number of other administrative buildings located throughout the county.

 

 

DISTRICT & BOROUGH COUNCILS

 

East Sussex has five District and Borough Councils, each with a border on the coast. From west to east they are: 

 

Eastbourne Borough Council

Hastings Borough Council

Lewes District Council 

Rother District Council 

Wealden District Council

 

There is also East Sussex County Council as the provider of services to the 5 East Sussex districts. These councils all work together. Do not make the mistake of thinking that they are fully independent autonomous regions. That may have been so in the past, but with budget cuts things change and the trend is to merge.

 

In our opinion, all local councils should be replaced by Central Government to save even more money. The local elected members might then be answerable to Secretary of State for failures, favours and other impropriety in their region in the interests of creating a more efficient system - where at the moment the system is open to abuse.

 

There should be a unified database of interests linked to planning permissions with both officers and members with known interests automatically barring them from any decision making forum. In the digital age this is a fairly simple way to detect crime using Cyber or Anti-Terrorist, Anti-Fraud or Money Laundering technology. This technology should also be applied to Parish Councils.

 

Planning officers and lawyers that are repeated many times over in different regions could be replaced with a central system that takes in planning applications and compares the need to a national database, rather than allowing each locality to spoil what the country actually needs with local agendas that do not truly reflect national policies.

 

As near neighbours and with councils now sharing facilities and working together, these areas of Sussex are included in our remit and an area where climate change and affordable housing are issues that need urgent attention. Where the coastline is a feature in every Council, Blue Growth is a food security issue, especially where this side of of our local economy is under-exploited.

Stop using fossil fuels, build 100% renewable energy housing and vehicles

 

GLOBAL WARMING - The Sun provides us with an infinite supply of energy upon which all life on earth depends. Our blue planet has experienced many climate changes in its history, including the ice age when amazing creatures such a the Dinosaurs and Mammoths suffered extinction. Man is artificially warming the planet by burning fossil fuels in some kind of economic arms race that cannot be sustained and must be brought under control if we are not to extinguish the lives of many more species such as the Polar Bears in the Arctic.
