Polling District Review: pre-consultation 2021

On 14 September, The Local Government Boundary Commission England (LGBCE) published the Final Recommendations Report in which they propose an entire restructure of Lambeth’s ward boundaries and names. The statutory review will begin with a pre-consultation period between 27 September and 15 October.

Statutory review

The report will now sit in Parliament. Their final decision is due later this year.

Therefore, in accordance with the requirements of the Representation of the People Act 1983, and the Electoral Administration Act 2013, Lambeth Council will be carrying out a statutory review of polling districts and polling places within the London Borough of Lambeth. Lambeth will carry out this review between 29 Oct - 30 Nov.

As a result of the new wards, this review will result in an entirely new set of Polling District Boundaries. As a result, we will also be reviewing all our existing polling stations and considering a range of potential new venues.

In advance of the formal consultation, Lambeth Council is conducting a pre-consultation period between 27 September and 15 October. We are seeking views of all Lambeth residents, particularly disabled residents, community organisations, and council members, on the current polling districts and polling places.

The current arrangements for Borough of Lambeth are 90 polling districts and 135 polling stations.

A list of current polling stations is at the bottom of this page.

Make a suggestion or comment

Persons or bodies making suggestions or comments should, if possible, give alternative venues that may be used as polling stations.

Suggestions or comments will be published along the scheme report which will state the council’s proposed polling districts and polling places. This is due to be published in late October 2021 and will launch the formal consultation period.
