About the 2023 Review
The Boundary Commission for England is an independent and impartial non-departmental public body responsible for reviewing Parliamentary constituency boundaries in England. In 2021 we began a review of all the Parliamentary constituencies in England on the basis of rules set by the Parliamentary Constituencies Act 1986 (as amended). The rules require every constituency – apart from two on the Isle of Wight – to have an electorate that is no smaller than 69,724, and no larger than 77,062. We submitted our final recommendations for new constituencies to the Speaker of the House of Commons in June 2023.
Our final recommendations are set out in a report of three volumes. This volume, containing a list of local government wards (and part-wards) included in each of the recommended Parliamentary constituencies, should be considered alongside Volume one: Report, which provides details on how we reached our final recommendations, and Volume three: Maps, which includes a detailed map of each proposed constituency.
About this volume
This volume contains details on the composition of each recommended constituency. In most cases this is provided with details of the local government wards that form a constituency, but occasionally includes information on polling districts (or – very rarely – an alternate description) where we have divided wards between constituencies. The local government wards are those that existed or were in prospect on 1 December 2020 (as specified in the legislation). The councils where wards were prospective on that operative date were:
Basingstoke and Deane
|Hammersmith and Fulham
Isle of Wight
Richmond upon Thames
