Changes proposed for parliamentary constituency


Wednesday, 14 July, 2021

Did you know that Parliamentary constituencies are set to change?

The independent Boundary Commission for England (BCE) are drawing the map of constituencies in England and needs your help to shape their final recommendations, ensuring they take into consideration local knowledge and views.

The changes will make the number of electors in each constituency more equal, thus ensuring individual votes are of broadly equal weight, and in doing so increase the number of constituencies from 533 to 543.

For this Parliamentary constituency, the proposal locally includes changing the constituency size and shape to include central Leatherhead and removing Banstead and the surrounding area.

Until 2 August 2021, the BCE are holding a consultation, allowing you to share your knowledge about your local area. The Commission considers every piece of feedback that it receives, whether that is about where the constituency boundaries should be or the name of the constituency.
