Boundary Review of Parliamentary Constituencies 2021-23
The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is the independent organisation responsible for reviewing Parliamentary constituency boundaries in England.
On 8th June the BCE published its proposals for new parliamentary boundaries at its website. The current review will conclude with their formal report and recommendations in June 2023, so it is referred to as the '2023 Review'. You can see a summary of the process by clicking on the 'Review process' link at the top of their web page or read a more detailed description in their Guide to the 2023 Review(external link opens in a new tab). Recent changes to the law make it very likely that recommendations from this review will be implemented, so you are encouraged to participate in the process by giving your views through the BCE website.
You can use this website to:
- view current constituency and local authority boundaries.
- view BCE proposals for new constituency boundaries; and
- submit a response directly about the proposals (during a defined consultation period).
From the second consultation period onwards, you will also be able to:
- view the responses submitted by others; and
- submit a comment directly, supporting or contesting a response from somebody else.
To help you use the website effectively, BCE has produced a short and simple step by step guide: just click on the 'How to' link at the top of their web page.
Consultation is currently open until Tuesday 2nd August 2021 - please make sure to respond by that date at the latest.
This is separate to and therefore not to be confused with the current Electoral Review of Mid Sussex District Council being conducted by the Local Government Boundary Commission (England).
