Air pollution is not just a central London problem, with many areas still exceeding the legal limits for pollution across the city. That is why from 25 October 2021, the central London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) is expanding to create a single, larger zone up to the North Circular Road (A406) and South Circular Road (A205). The North and South Circular Roads themselves are not in the zone. This is part of the commitment by the Mayor and TfL to help every Londoner breathe cleaner air.

Voter Registration

You may have seen one of these cards on your doormat and wondered what this was all about? Lambeth’s Electoral Registration Officer must undertake a canvass of all households in the borough each year to check voter details are correct. 'Canvassers' are out and about knocking on the doors of residents who have not already confirmed their details have changed - and more importantly - confirmed their details remain unchanged. You have to do this every year.
