2018 Boundary review

About the 2018 Review

The UK Parliament has decided to reduce the number of constituencies, and therefore MPs, from 650 to 600. In England, the number of constituencies will reduce from 533 to 501.

The Boundary Commission for England is the independent and impartial body that is considering where the boundaries of the new constituencies should be. In doing so, they have to ensure that every new constituency has roughly the same number of electors: no fewer than 71,031 and no more than 78,507. While proposing a set of boundaries which are fairer and more equal, the Commission will also try to reflect geographic factors and local ties. The Commission will also look at the boundaries of existing constituencies and local government patterns in redrawing the map of parliamentary constituency boundaries across England.

Last year, the Boundary Commission for England published and consulted on their initial proposals for new constituency boundaries and received nearly 20,000 responses. 

From  Tuesday 17 October 2017 the Revised proposals for new constituency boundaries will be available to view via the Boundary Commision webiste. They will consult on these proposals for eight weeks, until 11 December 2017. This will be the last consultation during this review of constituencies, and the last chance to contribute your views to the Commission on the best pattern of constituencies to recommend to Parliament when the review concludes next year.

Have your say from 17 October 2017 until 11 December 2017 using their website www.bce2018.org.uk
