A Huthwaite electoral area is one division of Sutton town in the Ashfield District under Nottinghamshire County Councils. This Sutton West Ward was redefined prior 2015 elections, and councillors since represent a renamed Huthwaite and Brierley Ward.
Brierley is an address formally introduced to this locality after firstly choosing title for a designated Brierley Forest Park area. That large country parkland opened 1999 with pathways stretching eastward from northern Huthwaite connecting similar historic neighbouring mining areas of Teveral, Skegby and Stanton Hill, all tied within town boundaries of Sutton. Much of the land reclaimed site of the old coal pit around which Stanton Hill was built. Although officially titled Sutton Colliery, it remained commonly referred to as Brierley pit because so many South Yorkshire coal miners relocated from that Barnsley area. Brierley was therefore an apt choice to reflect a wider shared past industrial heritage. Next saw renaming of the adjoining Huthwaite Golf Course. But the opening of a newly built 2013 Huthwaite Medical Centre overlooking a maturing influential forest has truly asserted addressing.
