Ward meetings

Residents of Rotherhithe are represented at the local level by their councillor. The councillor organises community meetings for members of their ward to discuss issues affecting the local area. Sometimes, your councillor will chair a joint meeting with a neighbouring ward councillor to discuss an issue affecting both wards.
