2018 Boundary Review

Published Thursday, 16 November 2017

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is conducting a review of parliamentary constituencies.

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is an independent and impartial advisory public body, which reviews the boundaries of parliamentary constituencies. Currently they are conducting the 2018 review of parliamentary constituencies in England, including those in Bromley, which they are required to report to Parliament in September 2018. To do this they need your help.

Their initial proposals were produced and consulted on earlier in the year. Responses and representations were considered and revised proposals have now been published.

You can view these revised proposals on the Boundary Commission for England website and comment on them until 11 December 2017.

This is the final time that the public will get a chance to give their views before the recommendations are reported to Parliament in September 2018. 

What is changing in London?

The London region has been allocated 68 constituencies – a reduction of five from the current number. The proposals leave four of the 73 existing constituencies unchanged, though substantial change is required through London in order to comply with the electoral quota.

As it has not always been possible to allocate whole numbers of constituencies to individual London boroughs, they have grouped them into sub-regions. The number of constituencies allocated to each sub-region is determined by the electorate of the combined boroughs.
