Parliamentary Boundary Review

The Boundary Commission for England is conducting a review of Parliamentary Constituency boundaries. This will affect the Stratford Parliamentary Constituency.

Constituency boundaries are changing, and it's your final chance to help shape the new map. The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is required by Parliament to undertake an independent and impartial review
of all constituencies in England, to rebalance the number of electors in each constituency.

Constituency sizes currently vary widely due to population changes since the last boundary review. The new map proposed by the Commission will make sure each constituency has between 69,724 and 77,062 electors, so that each MP represents roughly the same number of electors. The Boundary Review also requires that the number of constituencies in England increases from 533 to 543.

The Commission claims that it has listened to the feedback sent in from the public and have changed nearly half of the initial proposals published in 2021. The new revised proposals are now available to view via an interactive map on the consultation website bcereviews.org.uk.

A final public consultation is open now until 5 December 2022 and is the last chance to provide your views on new constituency boundaries. The Boundary Commission for England has invited the public to visit bcereviews.org.uk and comment on the proposals via the website, email or letter. Hard copies of the proposals are available to view at public places of deposit listed on the Boundary Commission for England website. Copies of the maps are displayed in the reception area at the Council Offices in Elizabeth House, Church Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 6HX.

You can give your feedback on anything, from where the proposed electoral boundaries are, to the suggestions for new constituency names. To tell the Commission whether the new proposals for
constituencies best represent your local community, visit the Boundary Commission for England website and have your say before 5 December 2022.
