Have your say on a new political map for Lambeth Council

Open date: Tuesday, 2 February 2021 at 12.01am Close date: Monday, 12 April 2021 at 10.59am Type: External consultation Neighbourhood: Lambeth wide

The Local Government Boundary Commission are asking local people and organisations to comment on their draft recommendations for new ward boundaries across Lambeth Council.

About the proposals

Last year, the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) started a review of Lambeth council’s electoral wards. The process is designed to make sure that the wards are as fair as possible in terms of representation. The LGBCE wants to make sure councillors will represent about the same number of electors, and that ward arrangements will help the council work effectively.

Following a first-stage consultation with Lambeth residents, community groups and organisations and the voluntary sector in the borough, the LGBCE has drawn up proposals which make changes to the current electoral wards. It is proposing that there should be 26 wards and 1-3 councillors per ward. All wards will change.

Proposed changes include:

  • Creation of a new South Bank & Waterloo ward to address the over representation in the existing Bishop's ward
  • Significantly different new wards across the whole borough

Join us for an online event to discuss the proposals

Working with the LGBCE, Lambeth council now wants to hear the views and comments of residents, businesses and community groups on these proposals. We would like to invite you to attend a special consultation event at which the current proposals will be outlined, so that comments and feedback can be gathered.

Date: 11 March

Time: 6pm – 7pm

This event will be recorded and will be available to view via our website.
