The councils' service delivery brands

You may have seen information from Lewes District Council or Eastbourne Borough Council with the logos of one of our service delivery brands on. These brands represent most of the external services the councils provide, divided by service area. Each logo uses specific colours and we have started using these colours on the pages of this website to help you know which service area the page relates to.
