Proposed Parliamentary boundary changes

The deadline for commenting on the proposals has now passed and the consultation closed.

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) will now consider the results of the consultation before proceeding with its review.

The BCE is required by Parliament to undertake an independent and impartial review of all constituencies in England, to rebalance the number of electors in each constituency.

Constituency sizes currently vary widely due to population changes since the last boundary review. The new map proposed by the Commission will make sure each constituency has between 69,724 and 77,062 electors, so that each MP represents roughly the same number of electors.

The 2023 Boundary Review also requires that the number of constituencies in England increases from 533 to 543.
