A special online event hosted by Lambeth Council with a presentation on the Local Government Boundary Commission for England's proposed electoral wards.
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 the first-stage consultation with Lambeth residents, community groups and organisations and the voluntary sector in the borough, the LGBCE has drawn up proposals that 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 (due to low population).
