Meet the Candidates! Lambeth Council Elections

The candidates for the election of our ward councillors have been published here on the Lambeth website.

We are holding three public meetings (‘hustings’), one for each of the following wards: West Dulwich, Knights Hill and Gipsy Hill, so you can hear the views of your potential new local councillors and their priorities, and ask them questions. All candidates are being invited. The public meetings will all be held from 7pm to 9pm, as follows:

Each event is free but we are limiting numbers in each venue. Please register your attendance on Eventbrite using these links:

Which ward do I live in?
This might have changed as a result of the recent Local Government Boundary Review. You can find your ward on your Poll Card or from the maps published by Lambeth: West Dulwich Ward Map, Knights Hill Ward Map, Gipsy Hill Ward Map

Please submit your questions now and up to 12noon on the day of each meeting by emailing: info@norwoodforum.org. Subject to the number of questions submitted beforehand, there may be an opportunity to ask questions on the day.

Covid policy
Attendees at the meetings are strongly advised to wear masks and to be respectful of others who may wish to socially distance. Numbers in the venues will be limited.
We also encourage everybody attending to do a lateral flow test on the day of the hustings. Please do not attend if your test is positive.
If you have any COVID symptoms (recently updated) you should not attend the public meeting.
If you have any other respiratory tract infection symptoms please also consider not attending as the person sitting next to you may be vulnerable themselves or have vulnerable relatives.

If you need to cancel your “in-person” ticket, please do so asap so we can offer it to somebody else. You can do this via your Eventbrite confirmation email or by emailing: info@norwoodforum.org.

All venues have step free access

Why and when are the elections happening?
Our local councillors are elected every four years. The next election for local councillors will happen on Thursday 5 May 2022.
A councillor's primary role is to represent their ward and the people who live, work and study in it.
Councillors provide a bridge between the community and the council.
