Brighton Marina and Whitehawk merge on border changes

BRIGHTON Marina is lumped in with Whitehawk on county boundary changes.

The changes, coming into effect for next year’s Brighton and Hove local council elections, also see a new borough beyond the traditional Brighton-Hove boundary, comprising Westdene and Hove Park.

New boroughs for Round Hill, Kemp Town, Stanmer and Fiveways are being created, but plans to abolish the Brunswick and Adelaide borough, represented by Council Chair Phelim Mac Cafferty and Deputy Chair Hannah Allbrooke, were rolled back in the final recommendations of the Municipal Boundary Commission .

Brighton Marina will now form part of a ‘Whitehawk and Marina’ station together with Roedean.

The changes will see a total of 23 wards across the city, an increase of two, with only five wards retaining their existing boundaries.

The number of councilors on Brighton and Hove City Council remains the same at 54.

In publishing the recommendations, Commission Chair Professor Colin Mellors said: “We are very grateful to the people of Brighton and Hove. We looked at all the views they gave us and they helped us improve our previous suggestions.

“We believe the new agreements will ensure electoral justice while maintaining local ties.”

More than 1,000 people and organizations made comments to help design the new boroughs, with plans to subdivide Patcham scrapped, the proposed borough of Kemp Town to include Arundel Street and only minor changes to the boundaries for Regency and Brunswick and Adelaide boroughs should be convincing evidence from local residents to maintain the existing borders”.

The changes will become law once approved by Parliament and Council staff will ensure that arrangements are in place for the next local elections in May 2023.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is an independent body accountable to Parliament and recommending fair electoral and boundary rules for local authorities in the country.

The Commission aims to ensure that each city council represents a similar number of voters, make ratings based on local needs and views, and create boundaries that are appropriate and reflect community ties and identities.
