Parliamentary Constituency Boundary Review 2018

Initial proposals

Following a decision by Parliament to reduce the number of constituencies in the UK from 650 to 600, and to ensure the number of electors in each constituency is more equal, the independent Boundary Commission for England (BCE) has been asked to make independent recommendations about where the boundaries of English constituencies should be.

The BCE must report to Parliament in 2018 and, if agreed by Parliament, the new constituencies will be in use at the next scheduled General Election in 2022.

The BCE's initial proposals were published in September 2016.

Slough Borough Council responded to the initial proposals in November 2016.

The Boundary Commission published all the representations from their consultation on these proposals in February 2017.

The council responded to the representations.

Next steps

The Boundary Commission intends to publish its revised proposals for new constituency boundaries on 17 October and will consult on these proposals for eight weeks, until 11 December.

This will be the last consultation and the last chance to contribute views to the Commission on the best pattern of constituencies to recommend to parliament.

The proposals have been published on the Commission's website.

It is easy to comment on the revised proposals - just visit the BCE's website.
