    Brighton and Hove Accident Claim


    Brighton and Hove is a city and unitary authority area found within the ceremonial county of East Sussex on the south coast of the United Kingdom. The city is situated at the western edge of the county and is made up mostly of the two towns of Brighton and Hove, as well as some other smaller, contiguous settlements.

    The Administrative History of Brighton and Hove

    There have been a great many administrative changes which have led to the two initially very separate settlements of Brighton and Hove to become an amalgamated city and unitary authority area.

    Brighton and Hove received borough status in 1854 and 1898 respectively before the settlements of Hangleton, Preston Rural and West Blatchington were added to the administrative area of Hove in 1928. At the same time, the settlements of Ovingdean, Patcham and Rottingdean were made a part of Brighton and by the time Portslade on Sea was also added to that borough in 1974, the entire local area was split between the boroughs of Brighton and Hove.

    From that point, it was a short step toward the two councils amalgamating and forming a unitary authority and that occurred in 1997. The final element of the administrative development then came in the year 2001, when the two towns, Portslade and other surrounding areas and villages were granted city status by Queen Elizabeth II as part of the millennium celebrations.

    Modern Day Brighton and Hove

    In its present form Brighton & Hove has become the most populous seaside resort in the UK, with a population of well over 270,000 permanent residents. When you then add the many thousands of visitors which the city welcomes every year, you come to realise just how busy and active the city of Brighton and Hove really is.

    This busy nature is great for the economy of the city and also means that residents can enjoy a huge array of facilities, amenities and attractions, but there are some notable drawbacks too. For example, being such a busy settlement makes accidents and injuries more common in the city and it is for that reason that residents may wish to learn more about Brighton & Hove accident claim proceedings.
