Constituency boundary review

Parliament requires The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) to do an independent and impartial review of all constituencies in England. This is to rebalance the number of electors in each constituency.

Population changes mean constituency sizes are very different since the last boundary review. The new map proposed by BCE will make sure each constituency has between 69,724 and 77,062 electors. This means that each MP represents roughly the same number of electors.

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

The Commission proposals

The Commission has been listening to public feedback. As result, They have changed almost half of its initial proposals published last year

You can view these proposals on an interactive map.

You can view hard copies of the proposals at public places of deposit. You can find these on the Boundary Commission for England website.

Constituency consultaiton

A final public consultation is open now until 5 December. This is the last chance to provide your views on new constituency boundaries.

You can give your feedback on anything including:

  • where the proposed electoral boundaries are
  • suggestions for new constituency names

The BCE has invited the public to comment on the proposals via their website, email or letter.
