Review of Parliamentary Constituencies
Published on Wednesday, 16th June 2021
North Warwickshire residents are being urged to have their say on proposed changes to Parliamentary constituencies.
The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) has now published its initial proposals for new constituency boundaries and launched an eight week public consultation to enable members of the public to provide feedback on the proposals.
In the current proposals, the existing boundaries for North Warwickshire and Nuneaton are unchanged, other than to rename North Warwickshire as “Bedworth and North Warwickshire.”
The Commission has been set a quota by parliament, that each constituency must have “no less than 69,724 parliamentary electors and no more than 77,062.”
Both North Warwickshire (70,245) and Nuneaton (70,335) Constituencies are within this quota. Whilst at this stage the proposals don’t propose boundary changes, as the review progresses this may change. In addition, some neighbouring constituencies are not within quota, such as Meriden, Bosworth or NW Leicestershire, and they may then impact on our boundaries.
The Commission is consulting on the review for an initial eight-week period, until 2 August 2021, and are encouraging individuals and political parties to respond.
You can review the proposals in full and submit your responses to the proposals on the Boundary Commission for England's website.
