May 9th 2021: on this historic day, Bexhill- on-Sea Town Council was elected for the very first time!
Congratulations on all those who stood for election, with or without success. You all pushed out the boat to make democracy work. The results in brief:
“Bexhill Together” – 10 independent councillors.
“Bexhill Independents” – 7.
Now we work to promote unity in the community and do Bexhill residents proud. A huge thanks to all those who have campaigned since way back in 2011 onwards for better governance for the town. This election has taken place after a desperate and tragic year, with severe restrictions and uncertainty for all of us. But people have still voted. It is a vote for a better future. Thank you.

Bexhill could do it too!
Friends of the earth say “Parish and town councils may not be as powerful as local authorities but they can “do their bit” in addressing the climate and nature emergency and be a force for change.” Lets get a town council so we can act on this!
Within 100 years or less sea level maps indicate parts [of] Bexhill could be inundated. Areas of west Bexhill, Egerton Park, de Le Warr Pavillion, parts of the promenade, and railway lines, are all at risk. Bexhill has no specific flood plan. A Town Council could help form such a plan.
It’s a lot to ask but so important.
