Boundary Commission: MP Constituency Review

Boundary Commission: MP Constituency Review

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) today publishes proposals for new Parliamentary constituency boundaries as it opens its third and final consultation (17 October 2017).

Following a decision by Parliament to reduce the number of constituencies in the UK to 600 from 650, and to ensure that the number of electors in each constituency is equal, the BCE has been asked to make independent recommendations about where the boundaries of English constituencies should be.

This impacts Dursley by removing it from the existing Stroud MP constituency and placing it in a new MP consistency "Dursley, Thorbury & Yate"

Please note this proposal does not impact Dursley being located within Stroud District and Gloucestershire County Council regions.

Comments can be made by clicking on the Boundary Commission website bce2018.org.uk on or before the 11th December 2017. » Less
