Government[edit]

Rush Green is divided between the Eastbrook Ward in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and the Brooklands Ward in the London Borough of Havering, electing three councillors to Barking and Dagenham London Borough Council and three councillors to Havering London Borough Council. It is also divided between the Dagenham and Rainham and Romford parliamentary constituencies, each electing a member of parliament.
