Mawneys Ward (formerly Mawney ward) in the London Borough of Havering encompasses Upper Mawneys, the southern part of Collier Row, including the Lawns Park area, and the region west of Havering Road and Mashiters Hill.
To the south of Havering Village lies the suburbs of Chase Cross, Rise Park, Mawneys and Collier Row, which at one time housed the agricultural suppliers of vegetables and dairy produce and, as the community of North Romford, is now the home to more than a third of my constituents.

In the 14th century, the manor of Romford came under the ownership of Sir Walter de Mauny, leading to its renaming as Mawneys. In the 19th century, Mawneys became known for its gypsies, and by 1883, the manor's 265 acres were sold for development, marking the northward expansion of Romford, with Mawneys eventually becoming a satellite locality of Collier Row.
Collier Row is the largest community in the ward and was developed during the 1930s as part of the inter-war housing expansion. The area, named after historic charcoal burners, features a central crossroads with shopping facilities.
The ward is largely served by Transport for London bus routes 175, 247, 252, 294, 365 and 375. Parklands School, established in 1929-1931, which earned "Beacon Status" in 1995 for its high educational standards, serves the local area.
