2018 Boundary Review revised proposals published

Polling station in Chesterfield

Chesterfield residents can take part in a consultation on plans to change the parliamentary constituency boundaries.

The Boundary Commission for England has published proposals for new Parliamentary constituency boundaries as it opens its third and final consultation.

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 commission has been asked to make independent recommendations about where the boundaries of English constituencies should be.

An initial 12-week consultation was held in the autumn last year, giving the public the first chance to view and comment on the plans, followed by a second consultation in the spring of this year. Over 25,000 public responses were received during these consultations. Based on what the public told the the commission about their local communities, they have decided to revise over half of their initial proposals.
From 17 October, people can go to the Boundary Commission for England's website to view the new plans they have published. All the public comments received during the first two consultations are also published on the website.

People have until 11 December to have their say.
