Last chance to comment on parliamentary boundary changes

Parliamentary constituency boundaries are changing - and it’s your final chance to help shape the new map.

The Boundary Commission for England (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 BCE 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.

Following feedback, the BCE has changed nearly half of the initial proposals published last year. The new revised proposals are now available to view via an interactive map on the consultation website.

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