About our website

This is the website for Lewes District and Eastbourne Borough Councils. Both councils share a workforce and many of our services, including this website. Our website has been designed to meet Government Digital Services best practice standards.  It is intended to be easy to carry out the most popular tasks that we know our customers need to complete. We have made it simple to use the ‘search bar’ to look for the information you require as we know from research that this is now how most people find their way around websites.

You won’t find a directory of council teams or departments on this website. In the past local government websites were designed that way. However, we were told that people often found it confusing and difficult to find what they were looking for.  

Our aim now for this website is for customers to be able to complete the tasks they need to online themselves 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There will be even more of our services available online in future.  This will make them easier to use, whenever you need something from the council. However we will always help our customers over the phone who can’t get online or who need some extra support.

We always welcome your feedback, which you can give here:
