Letters from Lambeth council are going out to every household in the borough about the electoral register. If there are no change to the people listed it’s still important to confirm the details –easiest online or by text using the security codes in your letter. If you don’t confirm the names will come off the register after a while. People who are British, European, Commonwealth or Irish citizens are entitled to register to vote. Being on the electoral register also helps getting credit eg a credit card.
You can register to by post – but this is a slower two stage process.
The government has tightened up the rules making it harder for many people in Lambeth – especially those who move house a lot. This year a million people only just registered in time to vote in the general election in June. Many left it too late.
The last master plan for West Norwood was published in 2009 and much has changed since then. So the council will be updating the Master Plan over the next few months. Look out for events to have your say!

Cllr Jackie Meldrum at The Old Library
The council had a great response to the consultation on libraries across the borough and is now considering all the comments. The next step will be to work with local communities to work out a way forward for each library. The council will be holding more public meetings and events and details will be available in the coming weeks.
