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.
