Initial Parliamentary Boundary Review Proposals

The initial proposals for new Parliamentary constituency boundaries have now been published. 

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

  • The number of constituencies in the West Midlands must reduce from 59 to 53.
  • By law, every constituency proposed must contain between 71,031 and 78,507 electors.
  • Local government wards are largely used as the building blocks for proposed constituencies

There now follows a 12 week consultation period with public hearings being held across the West Midlands.
