Polling district and polling places review 2021

A recent review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) proposed extensive changes to Lambeth’s electoral wards. 

The Commission has recommended to Parliament that the number of wards in the borough increases from 21 three councillor wards to 25 wards, each served by two or three councillors.

View the LGBCE’s recommendations in full.

Lambeth’s new wards will come into force at the local council elections in May 2022. As a result of the changes, a formal review of polling districts and polling places is currently taking place. This will decide polling district boundaries for each ward and designate a polling place for each polling district.
