The London Borough of Lewisham will be conducting a review of all polling districts and polling places as required by section 18c of the Representation of the People Act 1983. 

The Acting Returning Officer (ARO) for Parliamentary constituencies within the London Borough of Lewisham will make proposals for the scheme of polling districts and places in all wards. The timetable provides details of when these will be published.
