A new map of proposed constituencies in England has been published today (Tuesday 8th November) by the Boundary Commission for England (BCE), giving members of the public a final chance to have their say on proposals for new constituencies in their area.
The current Blackpool and Fleetwood Constituencies see marked changes, whilst the Fylde remains largely unaffected, its boundaries changing to include Poulton.
This comes about as the Boundary Commission has been tasked to review Parliamentary constituencies so rebalancing the number of electors in each.
From today (8th November), members of the public will be able to view and comment on new suggested constituency boundaries.
On the Boundary Commission’s site ( https://www.bcereviews.org.uk/ ) residents can view an interactive map of the proposals for the new constituencies, and submit views directly to the BCE. To get started, simply enter you postcode for the area you are interested in, or select the region, then click the ‘Go to’ button.
This third and final consultation will last four weeks, ending on 5th December. This will be the last opportunity for the public to have a say on the new map of constituencies in England. The Commission will also publish all comments received during the secondary consultation stage, including transcripts from the public hearings held around the country. Following this upcoming final consultation, the BCE will form its final recommendations which will be submitted to Parliament by July 2023.
