Suggested remarking of parliamentary constituencies in Bucks

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) has published its initial proposals for new constituency boundaries.

They're now inviting the public to view and provide feedback on the proposed boundaries as part of an eight-week consultation process.  

The 2023 Review of Parliamentary constituencies was formally launched in January this year. The Commission is required to ensure that the number of electors in each constituency is more equal; in doing so, the number of constituencies in England will increase from 533 to 543. The Commission is undertaking an independent review of all constituency boundaries in England and will present our final recommendations to Parliament by July 2023.

For the South East, that means a proposed increase from 84 to 91 constituencies.

Members of the public are encouraged to visit www.bcereviews.org.uk to view maps showing the proposed new boundaries and provide feedback before the consultation closes on 2 August 2021. People can comment on anything from where the proposed new boundary lines are to the names of the constituencies. There will be a further two rounds of consultation in 2022. Following the conclusion of all three consultation periods, the Commission will look at all the evidence received before forming its final recommendations.  

Tim Bowden, Secretary to the Boundary Commission for England, said: 

“We consider all feedback received during the consultation process, and it is your local knowledge that helps us to shape constituencies that best reflect your local area. It is easy to get involved – view our proposals and have your say through our online consultation portal –  www.bcereviews.org.uk ”
