The Boundary Commission for England is an independent and impartial non-departmental public body which is responsible for reviewing Parliamentary constituency boundaries in England.

The commission is currently conducting a review of rules set by Parliament in 2011 for new Parliamentary constituency boundaries in September 2018, which will result in a reduction of constituencies in England from 533 to 501 based on an electorate of between 71,031 and 78,507 per constituency.

The West Midlands has a reduction from 59 to 53 constituencies and it is being recommended that the Stratford-upon-Avon constituency is to include Wellesbourne and Walton, Ashorne, Newbold Pacey and Moreton Morrell, which are all part of  Wellesbourne East Ward.

The Boundary Commission is consulting on these proposals up until 5th December 2016 and is encouraging everyone (members of the public, parish councils and local authorities) to use this opportunity to help shape the new constituencies. It’s therefore important for as many people as possible to comment. You can find out more information on how to do this on the Boundary Commission website and about the public hearings, which are being held in Leamington Spa on 10th and 11th November.
