Home Your Council Voting & Elections Boundary Commission 2023 Review of Parliamentary Constituencies

Who are the Boundary Commission and what is the 2023 Review?

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

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) has published its revised proposals for new constituency boundaries. We invite the public to view and provide feedback on the proposed boundaries as part of an eight-week consultation process.  

Constituency boundaries are changing, and it’s your final chance to help shape the new map.

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is required by Parliament to undertake an independent and impartial review of all constituencies in England, to rebalance the number of electors in each constituency.

Constituency sizes currently vary widely due to population changes since the last boundary review. The new map proposed by the Commission will make sure each constituency has between 69,724 and 77,062 electors, so that each MP represents roughly the same number of electors. The 2023 Boundary Review also requires that the number of constituencies in England increases from 533 to 543.

The Commission has listened to the feedback sent in from the public, and have changed nearly half of the initial proposals published last year. The new revised proposals are now available to view via an interactive map on the consultation website bcereviews.org.uk.

A final public consultation is open now until 5 December and is the last chance to provide your views on new constituency boundaries. The Boundary Commission for England has invited the public to visit bcereviews.org.uk and comment on the proposals via the website, email or letter.

Hard copies of the proposals are available to view at Loxley House by appointment only. If you would like to make an appointment to view the proposals please get in touch with us to arrange an appointment. You can give your feedback on anything from where the proposed electoral boundaries are, to the suggestions for new constituency names.

To tell the Commission whether the new proposals for constituencies best represent your local community, visit bcereviews.org.uk and have your say before 5 December.
