2018 Parliamentary Boundary Review
Last year, the Boundary Commission for England published and consulted on our initial proposals for new constituency boundaries.
We received nearly 20,000 responses to that consultation. The next stage of the 2018 Review is for us to publish all those representations so that others may comment on them.
I write to inform you that we have published all the representations today. We will be inviting comments on them for the statutory four-week period, until Monday 27 March 2017.
All representations have been published on our website at www.bce2018.org.uk, where you can search by a number of different options, such as name, reference number, existing constituency or type of respondent, as well as using the interactive mapping system to locate comments geographically.
The Commission would like to encourage you take time to see what others have said about our initial proposals, and add your views to those.
Following the secondary consultation, the Commission will be considering all representations received from both consultations, and will consider whether any revisions are needed. If we decide to revise the proposals, we will consult on the revised boundaries.
We currently expect any such consultation to happen towards the end of 2017, or in early 2018.
