English: Langney is a distinct part of Eastbourne, East Sussex and is on the eastern side of the popular seaside resort. The original village and priory have now been amalgamated with the main town of Eastbourne and Langney was identified as a single self-contained polling ward within the borough of Eastbourne until 2002. Since the boundary changes of 2002 the Langney village became part of St. Anthony's ward, Langney point became part of Sovereign ward and the remaining northern part of Langney became the new Langney ward. The new Langney ward is currently held by the Liberal Democrats and represented by Cllrs Harun Miah, Daniel Purchese and Troy Tester at Eastbourne Borough Council and Cllr Jon Harris at East Sussex County Council. Langney has grown in recent years (especially since 1970) and is contiguous to Langney Point, which mainly comprises newer properties built on shingle. These properties extend down to the English Channel and the original Eastbourne "Promenade" has been extended eastwards to Langney Point. North of old Langney Village is naturally known as "North Langney" which, once again, consists mainly of newer housing, but there are a few older properties which have seen a considerable change to the local landscape from farmland to suburbia.
