Boundary reviews 

Parliamentary Boundary Review

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is carrying out an independent and impartial review of all constituencies in England, to rebalance the number of electors in each constituency. 

A secondary consultation on the BCE's initial proposals for new constituencies took place between 22 February and 4 April 2022, and included 32 public hearings across the country.

A third and final round of public consultation on revised constituency proposals ran between 8 November and 5 December 2022. 

The BCE will send its final report and recommendations to Parliament by Saturday 1 July 2023. 

Further information can be found on the Boundary Commission website.

More details on the final recommendations will be available here once published by the Boundary Commission.
