Parliamentary constituency boundary changes
Constituency boundary changes
Constituency boundaries are going to change to reduce the number from 533 to 501.
Number of electors in the 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.
New constituency boundaries
On 17 October 2017, we published revised proposals for new constituency boundaries.
Will Penrith and the Borders constituency cease to exist?
Yes, if the proposals are accepted. The division of Eden is between Penrith and Solway County Constituency, with an electorate of 72,284, and Westmorland and Lonsdale County Constituency, with an electorate of 72,371.
