The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) has launched a secondary public consultation on its proposed map of constituencies. The commission is undertaking an independent and impartial review of all constituencies in England, to ensure the number of electors in each constituency are broadly the same. As part of this process, the number of constituencies in England will increase to 543.
The 2023 Boundary Review requires substantial changes to the map of constituencies across England, and BCE is asking councils and the public to help shape the boundaries in their area.
“We [will] take every response into account during our review of constituency boundaries.” BCE
You can view the existing and proposed constituency boundaries for your area, and provide comments on them, via the BCE reviews website until Monday 4 April 2022. Responses can also be shared by letter, email, or in person at one of the 32 public hearings taking place across the country.
After the secondary consultation has concluded, the commission will consider all representations received. If the proposals are to be changed, following this consultation, a further four-week written consultation on the revised proposals will be conducted. The BCE will then submit its final recommendations to the Speaker of the House of Commons no later than 1 July 2023.
