Eastbourne’s first council was established in 1883 when the town was incorporated as a municipal borough under the Municipal Corporations Act of 1882.
The town’s first Mayor was Mr Alderman G A Wallis.
The construction of a Town Hall soon followed when the foundation stone was laid by Lord Edward Cavendish on 9th October 1884. The building was opened by the Mayor, Mr Alderman G Boulton, on 20th October 1886.
