Lewisham Council - Councillors and wards

Councillors and wards

Councillors are elected by the local community to represent your views. They are responsible for making decisions on your behalf about local services and agreeing budgets and council tax charges.

Each councillor represents an area called a ward, serving for four years. We currently have a directly elected Labour Mayor, 53 Labour councillors and 1 Green Party councillor.
