Parliamentary Constituency and Local Boundary Reviews
2023 Parliamentary Boundary Review
The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is the independent organisation responsible for reviewing parliamentary constituency boundaries.
In January 2021, the BCE announced the start of their review of the Parliamentary constituencies in England. The BCE is required to report to Parliament by 1 July 2023. The BCE has now published the Guide for this review, which you can find on their website here.
On 8 June 2021, the BCE published its initial proposals for the new constituency boundaries.
An 8-week public consultation took place, during which the BCE reports they received over 33,000 responses. The BCE’s review team will prepare those findings for publication in early 2022, when there will be another opportunity to have your say – including a number of public hearings. The Commission will hold a consultation on all the responses received on the initial proposals.
Any new / changed constituency boundaries will be in place for any UK Parliamentary (General) election that takes place after the conclusion of the review (but not by elections). Currently, the next scheduled Parliamentary (General) election is due to take place on Thursday, 2 May 2024
