Brighton was a non-metropolitan district in East Sussex, England. It was abolished on 1 April 1997 and replaced by Brighton and Hove.

Political control[edit]

Since the first election to the council in 1973 political control of the council has been held by the following parties:[1]

Party in control Years
Conservative 1973-1983
No overall control 1983-1988
Labour 1988-1997

Council elections[edit]

Elections from 1973 to 1983 were for the whole council. Following the 1983 election, one-third of the council (one seat in each of the 16 three-member wards) was up for election each year, other than county council election years. There was no election in 1996: the councillors due for election in that year had their term of office extended up to the end of the borough council in April 1997.
