About our ward

Tachbrook Ward stretches from Vauxhall Bridge Road to St George's Drive and includes Pimlico School, Dolphin Square and the north bank of the River Thames within its boundaries. The largely residential neighbourhood encompasses a broad cross section of the community, with its vibrant and varied amenities ranging from the shops and facilities of Tachbrook Street to the boutiques of the Moretons.

The Ward committee meets regularly to discuss local issues and campaigning activities and it maintains close contact with electors by means of InTouch newsletters, meetings and canvassing.
