Who’s who and who’s where on the new look Hastings Borough Council

Hastings has a new Mayor and a new set of faces at the top table making the decisions that will affect the every day lives of Hastings’ 96,000 residents.

Last night the new borough council met in Muriel Matters House for the first time since the elections just two weeks ago and below we provide a rundown of who’s who and who’s where in terms of committees and we’ve colour coded it too, red denotes a Labour member and blue a Conservative.

The council comprises 32 members and after the elections 24 of those councillors are from the Labour party and eight from the Conservatives.
