Boundary Commission has published its initial proposals for new Parliamentary constituencies.


Today (13 September) the independent Boundary Commission for England (BCE) has published its initial proposals for new Parliamentary constituencies.

The publication marks the start of 12 weeks of consultation, during which the Commission needs to hear from you to help shape the proposed new constituency boundaries.

Following a decision by Parliament to reduce the number of constituencies in the UK to 600 from 650, and to ensure that the number of electors in each constituency is more equal, the BCE has been asked to make independent recommendations about where the boundaries of English constituencies should be.

The BCE must report to Parliament in 2018 and, if agreed by Parliament, the new constituencies will be in use at the next scheduled general election in 2020.

Publication of the initial proposals today is the first time people get to see what the map of new constituencies might look like. The rules that the Commission works to are such that wide scale change is inevitable.

Sam Hartley, Secretary to the Commission, said: "Today’s proposals mark the first time people get to see what the new map of Parliamentary constituencies might look like. But they are just the Commission’s initial thoughts - during the next 12 weeks we want people to take a look and tell us what they like and don’t like about our proposals.

"Parliament has set us tight rules about reducing the number of constituencies, and making them of more equal size, but we now need the views of people around the country to help us shape constituencies that best reflect local areas. Use our website to tell us what you think, or come along to one of our public events to give us your views in person."

A spokesman for Sefton Council said: "This is the start of a consultation run by the BCE which could affect the Parliamentary constituencies of Southport, Sefton Central and Bootle.

"Please take the time to look at the BCE website and contact them directly to have your say."

It is easier than ever to get involved, by using the BCE’s website at www.bce2018.org.uk.

People can comment on anything from where the proposed new boundary lines are to the names of the constituencies.

The consultation closes on 5 December 2016.

There will be a further two rounds of consultation in 2017.

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

More information is available on the BCE’s website www.bce2018.org.uk and Twitter feed @BCE2018.
