About Our Party

About the constituency

The Bexhill and Battle constituency of East Sussex stretches from Bexhill on the south coast to Wadhurst on the Kent border, and from the Rother Levels in the east through the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty all the way to Heathfield in the west. The current constituency boundaries are outlined in the map opposite.

The constituency includes areas served by both Rother and Wealden district councils.

Each of the towns of Battle, Bexhill, Pevensey and Heathfield and the smaller villages in between present a different mix of people, age groups and priorities. We believe the best way for Labour’s message to be heard is to engage directly in our communities and offer practical help wherever people want to bring about positive change.

Boundary Changes

Like many parliamentary constituencies across the country, Bexhill and Battle is likely to be affected considerably by the ongoing 2018 boundary review, conducted by the Boundary Commission for England and Wales. You can view the current boundary change proposals by visiting the consultation portal website, where it's possible to provide feedback.


About the local Constituency Labour Party (CLP)

Since the election we’ve had a massive influx of members. We hold CLP-wide meetings every two months which are open to all members, but much of our activity takes place through smaller branches and groups where members can discuss and campaign on local issues.

Our constituency straddles two District Councils, Wealden and Rother, and our Branch structure reflects this. Within the Rother DC area, we have established branches based in Bexhill and Battle; within the Wealden DC area, we have a new branch covering Heathfield and Herstmonceux, and a more informal group of Pevensey members. We also have a Women's Forum which meets once a month.

Rother District Council is currently dominated by the Tories but we are working to increase representation at this level.

If you want to find out more about coming along to any of our meetings or would like to get involved in any way, then please follow the relevant links on this website or just contact one of the officers listed on the CLP Team page.
