Change to parliamentary constituencies

Did you know that parliamentary constituencies are set to change?

The independent Boundary Commission for England (BCE) are drawing the map of constituencies in England. They have been asked by Parliament to review constituencies in England to make sure the number of electors in them is equal. They need your help to shape their final recommendations, ensuring they take into consideration local knowledge and views.

From 8 June until 2 August 2021 the BCE are holding an eight week consultation so you can share your knowledge about your local area. The Commission considers every piece of feedback that it receives, whether that is about where the constituency boundaries should be or the name of the constituency.

How to provide feedback

It is easy to get involved. You can view interactive maps showing the proposed changes, and provide feedback by visiting the Boundary Commission for England's website.  

A copy of the 2023 review documents can also be viewed at Mercury House in Richmond. Please make an appointment first by calling 01748 829100 to view these documents.
