Parliamentary constituency boundary review

The Boundary Commission for England is currently undertaking a review of all Parliamentary constituency boundaries.

This review (which must report to Parliament by September 2018) is being carried out under rules laid down in the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Act of 2011.

What's changing

The new rules mean there'll be substantial changes to constituencies in England. These include reducing the number of constituencies from 650 to 600 and making sure each constituency contains a similar number of registered electors.

The initial proposals can be viewed on the Boundary Commission for England website from Tuesday 13 September 2016.

Your views

The final shape of the new boundaries will be by consultation. The Commission is encouraging you to comment, whether in support of or objection to the initial proposals. All comments will be considered and they may revise the constituency boundary as a result.

You are invited to comment on the revised proposals for a twelve week consultation period from 13 September. This will be your final opportunity to contribute to the design of the new constituencies.

Further details and how to respond can be found on the Boundary Commission for England website.
