2023 Review of the Parliamentary Constituencies

Boundary Commission for England

The 2023 Review of Parliamentary constituencies was formally launched in January 2021.

A Parliamentary constituency is the area in which residents vote for their Member of Parliament.

Due to population changes since the last review, the number of electors in some areas is much higher than in others. The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is required by law to ensure that the number of electors in each area is more equal; in doing so, the number of areas in England will increase from 533 to 543. To implement these requirements, there will be wide scale change to the majority of areas.

The BCE will make its final recommendations to Parliament by 1 July 2023. The Government must turn these recommendations into an ‘Order in Council’ that implements the recommendations. The areas set out in the Order will then be implemented for the next General Election after the date on which the legislation is approved.
