Brighton and Hove (or Brighton & Hove) is a unitary authority area and city on the south coast of Englandmarker. It is England's most populous seaside resort.

The city was established when two towns Brightonmarker and Hovemarker joined together to become a city. This is not the first time two large towns have joined together to become a city: notably Tel Aviv-Jaffamarker.

Brighton and Hove forms part of the Brighton/Worthing/Littlehampton conurbation, the 12th largest conurbation in the United Kingdommarker. Along this area of the south coast, there is little or no gap of countryside between these large towns and city. Directly to the west is Shoreham-by-Seamarker, and a short distance to the east are Peacehavenmarker and Newhavenmarker. The city, district and urban areas of Brighton and Hove have the biggest populations in the South East England region.

Brighton and Hove themselves were results of amalgamations:



The football team, Brighton & Hove Albion F.C., predates the unification of the two boroughs by ninety six years.

On 15 October 2004, Brighton and Hove was granted Fairtrade City status.

Brighton and Hove is currently the 15th largest city in England, and the largest city in the South East of England outside of London.

Council and directorates

The leader of the council is currently a Conservative Mary Mears, although the Conservatives only hold a minority of seats. The current mayor of Brighton and Hove is Councillor Ann Norman. John Barradell, OBE, started as Chief Executive on 1 October 2009. There are six directorates in the council structure see here for details.

The Council has twenty five Conservative, thirteen Labour, thirteen Green and two Liberal Democrat Councillors. There is one Independent councillor.

The two Liberal Democrats Councillors are Paul Elgood and David Watkins from Brunswick & Adelaide ward.
