Proposals for new Parliamentary Constituency boundaries

Information on redrawing the map of constituencies by the Boundary Commission for England.

Did you know that Parliamentary constituencies are set to change? 

The independent Boundary Commission for England (BCE) are redrawing the map of constituencies. The BCE has published initial proposals for new constituency boundaries. 

Detailed interactive maps are available on the BCE consultation portal. The maps show what the new constituencies might look like. 

Consultations and public hearings 

The Commission held their first public consultation period from 8 June to 8 August 2021. Responses to that consultation have now been published on the BCE consultation portal.  

A second consultation will run from 22 February to 4 April 2022 inclusive. There are no new proposals from the BCE at this stage. 

During this period, people can comment on what others have said in the first consultation. The BCE will also hold a limited number of public hearings in each English region. If you wish to speak at a public hearing, please book your slot via the Boundary Commission website

The Commission considers every piece of feedback that it receives. This can be on where the constituency boundaries should be or the name of the constituency. 

How to respond 

It is easy to get involved. Go to the Boundary Commission website to view interactive maps showing the proposed changes and to submit your feedback. You can submit your response to the Boundary Commission for England in 3 ways: 

If you wish your views to be considered, please ensure the Boundary Commission receive them by 4 April 2022

What happens next? 

The second consultation period closes on Monday 4 April 2022. After that date, the Boundary Commission will analyse all responses from both consultations. Then the Commission will make appropriate changes to their initial proposals. 

The BCE will publish their final "revised proposals." There will then be a final 4 week period of public consultation in late 2022.
