Parliamentary Boundary Review 2023

In January 2021, the Boundary Commission for England (BCE) announced the start of their review of the Parliamentary constituencies in England. The BCE is required to report to Parliament by 1 July 2023.

The first stage of the process was a public consultation which launched on 8 June and closed on 2 August 2021. The BCE report that over the course of that 8-week period, they received over 33,000 responses.

The full proposals and guidance on the review is available here.

More information is also available on our Polling places and electoral boundaries webpage.
