The 2018 Review of Parliamentary constituencies

The Boundary Commission for England is currently conducting a review of Parliamentary constituencies

The review will take place over approximately two and a half years, with final recommendations submitted to Parliament in September 2018.

The initial proposals for new boundaries were published on 13 September 2016, which began twelve weeks of public consultation, including holding public hearings in each region of England. All feedback from the initial consultation will then be published in early 2017, followed by a four week consultation period during which the public are invited to comment on that feedback.

The Commission will then review all comments from the initial and secondary consultation to revise the proposed boundaries. In late 2017/early 2018 there will be a third period of consultation lasting eight weeks, where the public will be invited to comment on the revised proposals.

After looking at whether any more changes need to be made, in September 2018 the Commission will make final recommendations in a report published and presented to the Parliament.

Initial Proposals

The Boundary Commission published the initial proposals for new Parliamentary Boundaries on 13th September 2016.
