Where your councillors live

Councillors map

A map showing where the 60 Newham councillors (red) and the mayor (blue) live.

There’s a notable clustering in the north of the borough, with less than a third of them living south of Barking Road.

    Martin, without crunching the numbers I am not sure of the relevance of the map. Doesn’t the distribution of councillors just reflect where population is also concentrated. I am old enough to remember when Newham had three constituencies and Newham South, as it was, had an active constituency Labour Party and it’s merger into the rest of Newham after the boundary change might be a cause of the lack of activists in the area south of the Barking Road. However it is more likely just the smaller, for now, population.
