Boundary Commission

There isn’t much time left to have your say on the Boundary Commission’s plans to change constituency boundaries.

Revised proposals were published in October, with constituents able to offer their opinion on what will happen to their ward until December 11.

After this date, the responses will be assessed by the commission to see if any last minute adjustments need to be made ahead of the final recommendations being submitted in September next year.

If agreed by parliament, the new constituencies will be used for the 2022 general election.

The boundary review is taking place to try and reduce the number of UK constituencies from 650 to 600.

The law also requires that every constituency, except four that cover specified islands, have roughly the same number of electors.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
