Mottingham lies at the extreme north of the Bromley & Chislehurst constituency and shares boundaries with both the Greenwich and Lewisham constituencies. This contributes to a strong sense of community identity. A large part of the centre of the Ward consists of former council estates along with roads to the west of White Horse Hill which are part of the Parish of Mottingham. The north of the Ward around Eltham College contains older housing including the home of W. G. Grace.
Electorate at the 2018 Borough Election: 7,306.
