2018 Parliamentary Constituency Boundary Review

The Boundary Commission for England have now provided the Government with their final recommendations for new constituency boundaries in England.

Initial proposals

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) was 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 have now published their final recommendations to Parliament and, if these are 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.

Final recommendations

The final recommendations for new constituency boundaries in England provided by The Boundary Commission for England to the Government on 5 September 2018 are now available.
