2018 Parliamentary Boundary Review


Revised Proposals for new Parliamentary Constituency Boundaries


Last chance to take part in the Boundary Review

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) has launched the third and final stage of consultations by publishing its ‘Revised Proposals’ for new constituency boundaries.  You have until 11 December 2017 to take the opportunity to have your say.

The Review is part of the process to reduce the number of parliamentary constituencies in the UK from 650 to 600. In England, the number of constituencies will reduce from 533 to 501.

To ensure that the number of electors in each constituency is equal, the BCE has been asked to make independent recommendations about where the new boundaries of English constituencies should be.

The proposals and maps for the nine English regions are available on the Boundary Commission website. 

The Commission would like to encourage you make time to look at the revised proposals, and add your views on them. You may wish to refer to the following documents to assist you in taking part:

  • BCE fact sheet explains the timetable for the Boundary Review and answers some of the most common questions about it.

The Commission would like to encourage you take time to see what others have said about their initial proposals, and add your views to those.

Representations about the proposals can also be made in writing direct to the Boundary Commission for England, 35 Great Smith Street, London SW1P 3BQ, or via the Boundary Commission website.

Once the consultation has ended, the BCE will present a report to Parliament in September 2018 with their final recommendations.
