2018 Parliamentary Constituency Boundary Review

The Boundary Commission for England is conducting a review of parliamentary constituencies and would like you to have your say.

Initial proposals

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) has been asked to make independent recommendations about where the boundaries of English constituencies should be following a decision by Parliament to reduce the number of constituencies in the UK from 650 to 600.

In England this would mean a reduction in Parliamentary seats from 533 to 501 and in London a fall from 73 to 68.

By law, every constituency must contain between 71,031 and 78,507 electors.

The BCE must report to Parliament in 2018 and, if agreed by Parliament, the new constituencies will be used at the next scheduled General Election in 2020.

The initial proposals for London were published on 13 September 2016 and consulted on for 12 weeks. These can be viewed on the Boundary Commission for England website.

Have your say

The Commission launched the second stage of its public consultation on Tuesday 28 February.

You can have your say online or by attending a public hearing held in London. Details of the hearings can be found on the BCE website.

The second consultation closes on 27 March 2017.

Following the conclusion of all consultation periods, the BCE will look at all the evidence received and make final recommendations to Parliament in September 2018.
