Parliamentary constituency boundary changes

Constituency boundaries changes

Constituency boundaries are going to be changed to reduce the number from 533 to 501.

Number of electors in new constituency

Constituencies will not have exactly the same number of electors, but the difference will be less than it is now, approximately 9,000 compared to 40,000 at the moment.

New constituency boundaries

Revised proposals for new constituency boundaries will be published on 17 October 2017.

Will Penrith and the Borders constituency cease to exist?

Yes, if the proposals are accepted. Eden will be divided between Penrith and Solway County Constituency, with an electorate of 72,284 and Westmorland and Lonsdale County Constituency, with an electorate of 72,371.
