Parliament has asked the Boundary Commission for England, an independent and impartial public organisation, to review all the constituency boundaries in England and it needs your help.
Sam Hartley, Secretary to the Commission explains: “We have to reduce the number of constituencies from 533 to 501; and make the number of electors in each more equal – that means a lot of change.
“Last month, we published our first set of proposals, which you can see on our website, and are now asking you to tell us what you think. Do the proposals reflect your local community – for instance are the local places that are important to you such as where you go to meet friends, play sports or attend clubs, in the same constituency as where you live?”
You have until 5 December 2016 to comment on the proposals, either online at www.bce2018.org.uk or by speaking at a public hearing (all the dates and how to book a slot are available on our website).
So now it’s over to you – go online to have your say and help shape the new Parliamentary constituencies in England!
