serving both east and west sussex
The long awaited Justsussex review is complete, this means that the quality and quantity of the updates to these pages will now more closely reflect the needs and wants of our users. We have retained a significant number of the most popular pages and removed features that were unpopular or too time intensive to maintain. The migration to the new website design is still continuing. Many thanks for your feedback.
Welcome to Justsussex. We have been maintaining the Sussex portal for over a decade, in that time we have shaped the content in order to offer our audience an appropriate mix of local news, business stories, jobs and employment pages, events and lesiure features. The concept behind Justsussex is to combine the content for East and West Sussex as well as the Unitary Authority that is Brighton and Hove.
The Justsussex local news coverage is based largely on press releases and news briefings and features local stories that reflect the interests of the county. Recent local news features included: The West Sussex Police And Crime Panel. The A22 London Road civil engineering improvements. The funding for the two and a half million pound music education hub.
The Freetime and local tourism pages have been subject to the greatest changes. Feedback clearly indicated that the pages were useful but required a major review to make the content relevant and up to date. Currently all the freetime pages have been taken offline and there is an upgrade programme in place that should see a relaunch in the Spring.
Updates to the Sussex Business News had been suspended pending the completion of the website review. We will be continuing with the Sussex Business News. The Sussex Business Directory will be retained but completely revamped, the content is going to be updated and expanded. All changes should be complete before April 2015.
All about Sussex
Sussex is one of the ancient counties of England, its name signifies 'South Saxons'. Historically Sussex was a Kingdom with its own monarch before being integrated into Wessex in 825. In the 1970s East and West Sussex were formed into seperate counties. The year 2000 saw Sussex gain a second city when Brighton was granted the same staus as Chichester. Sussex is dominated by its southern coast along which the bulk of the population live, the Downs and the Weald are also important geographic features.
The coastal plain
Sussex together with Hampshire enjoys the most sunshine of anywhere in the UK, rainfall is below the national average. The sunny coastal conurbations have attracted the majority of the county's population. 1 in 3 Sussex residents live in the Brighton/Worthing/Littlehampton corridor. East Sussex has a population of just over half a million, the County Council has its HQ in Lewes. West Sussex has 800,000 residents, the County Council is based in Chichester. 275,000 people live in Brighton and Hove.
