Brighton-le-Sands is an area of Merseyside, England in the borough of Sefton. It is located close to Crosby, situated between Blundellsands to the north, Waterloo to the south and Great Crosby to the east.
From 1950 until 2010 Brighton-le-Sands was within the boundaries of the Crosby constituency, whose MP from 1997 till 2010 was Claire Curtis-Thomas, a member of the Labour Party. Prior to her election the Crosby seat was generally considered to be a safe Conservative Party stronghold with Tory MP's elected at every election barring the Crosby by-election, 1981 where Shirley Williams of the Social Democratic Party was elected to represent the constituency. As a result of boundary revisions for the 2010 general election the Crosby constituency was abolished with its northern parts, including Brighton-le-Sands, being merged with the Eastern parts of Sefton that were formerly part of the Knowsley North and Sefton East constituency, to form the new constituency of Sefton Central, which is currently represented by the Labour Party MP Bill Esterson.
For elections to Sefton Council Brighton-le-Sands is situated in the electoral ward of Blundellsands, which is generally considered to be a safe Conservative stronghold with all 3 Councillors representing the area on Sefton council coming from the Conservative Party, the representatives on the council are Paula Margaret Parry, Peter Robert Papworth, and Sean Dorgan, who was elected to replace the retiring Robert Edward Roberts in the local elections.
