City Council

Brighton
Brighton
and Hove
Hove
was the first ever council in the United Kingdom where the Green Party were both the largest group and led the council (from May 2011 to May 2015). Industrial relations[edit] In 2013 the council was obliged to finalise single status across its workforce, resulting in a strike of its refuse collectors and street cleaners. Their council reformed their allowances to equalise them with other staff at the organisation conducting similar work.[2] Administration[edit] The Leader of the Council and Labour minority administration since May 2015 is Councillor Warren Morgan (Lab Co-op). [3] The mayor of Brighton
Brighton

for 2017-2018 is Councillor Mo Marsh.[4] Geoff Raw is the current chief executive.[5] DVLA database ban[edit] In 2012 it was revealed that the Brighton
Brighton
and Hove
Hove
unitary authority has been permanently banned from accessing information from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency. This information is normally made available to local authorities for purposes such as enforcing parking fines, but access can be withdrawn if they are found to be misusing the service. The Big Brother Watch organisation, which obtained the information about the ban under a Freedom of Information request, claimed that "the public are right to be worried that their privacy is at risk across a range of government services."[6] Census[edit] The first census of Brighton
Brighton
was in 1801. The resident population of Brighton
