Parliamentary constituencies review 2018
Following a decision by Parliament to reduce the number of constituencies in the UK to 600 from 650, and to ensure that the number of electors in each constituency is more equal, the Independent Boundary Commission for England (BCE) has been asked to make independent recommendations about where the boundaries of English constituencies should be.
The BCE must report to Parliament in 2018 and, if agreed by Parliament, the new constituencies will be in use at the next scheduled General Election in 2022.
Following a second round of consultation, the Commission have published its Revised Proposals for new constituency boundaries. The proposals and maps for the nine English regions have been published on their website at www.bce2018.org.uk. An eight-week public consultation period will run until 11 December 2017. This will be the final time the public will get a chance to give the Commission their views on the latest proposals before their recommendations are reported to Parliament in September 2018.
