Initial proposals for new Parliamentary constituency boundaries in the East Midlands region

1 What is the Boundary Commission for England?

  1. As already mentioned, BCE is an independent and impartial non‑departmental public body, which is required to review Parliamentary constituency boundaries in England. We must conduct a review of all the constituencies in England every eight years. Our role is to make recommendations to Parliament for new constituency boundaries.
  2. The Chair of the Commission is the Speaker of the House of Commons, but by convention he does not participate in the review. The Deputy Chair and two further commissioners take decisions on proposals and recommendations for new constituency boundaries. Further information about the commissioners can be found on our regular website.

You can find further information on our regular website at, or on our consultation portal at You can also contact us with any general enquiries by emailing, or by calling 020 7276 1102.
