Parliamentary Boundary Review – revised proposals

Date: 

Thursday, 19 October, 2017

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) has published proposals for new Parliamentary constituency boundaries as it opens its third and final consultation.

Parliamentary boundaries define the geographic area represented by each MP. Parliament has specified that the number of constituencies in the UK must reduce from the current 650 to 600. As a result the number of constituencies in England will decrease from 533 to 501.

The BCE is conducting the Review to ensure that the numbers of electors in each constituency are broadly equal.

The revised proposals for Surrey Heath involve moving Windlesham ward from the Surrey Heath constituency to the Windsor constituency. Residents are encouraged to submit their views to the BCE with a deadline of 11 December 2017.

The Commission will make its final report and recommendations in September 2018.
