Boundary Reviews

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is reviewing the constituency boundaries across England.

Final Recommendations

The BCE final recommendations were presented to Government on 5 September 2018.  If approved, the new boundaries will come into force at the next Parliamentary General election.

We're in the final stage of the 2018 Review of Parliamentary constituencies

Our Commissioners are currently considering all the representations received during the public consultation periods, before we provide our final recommendations to government in September 2018. At the end of the review, we will also publish all representations received in response to the consultation on the revised proposals.

In 2016, the BCE published initial proposals and held a 12-week consultation in which the Commission heard from any interested groups and individuals to help make the final recommendations as good as they can be. Nearly 20,000 individuals gave their views in writing, or at public hearings held by the Commission around the country.

On 28 February 2017, the Commission published all the representations received and opened a 4-week consultation period, inviting comment until Monday 27 March 2017.

The Boundary Commission has now launched its third and final consultation on changes to Parliamentary constituencies in England, intended to come into effect for the next scheduled general election in 2022.

You can view the proposed changes and see what other people have already said about your local area online. You will find an interactive map that’s quick and easy to use to respond to the consultation in minutes.

The Boundary Commission for England is an independent and impartial non-departmental public body which is responsible for reviewing Parliamentary constituency boundaries in England.
