Boundary Commission for England 2018 Review - Initial Proposals for Nuneaton Constituency
Published on Wednesday, 14th September 2016
If the proposed new constituency boundaries changes go ahead, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council will have two rather than three MPs.
The Boundary Commission for England are currently conducting a review on the basis of rules set by Parliament in 2011.
The rules state that, the independent and impartial non-departmental public body, has to make recommendations for new Parliamentary constituency boundaries in September 2018.
This will result in a significant reduction in the number of constituencies in England from 533 to 501, and require that every constituency must have an electorate that is no smaller than 71,031 and no larger than 78,507.
The detailed proposals of the massive changes announced could cut the number of MPs from 650 to 600 in 2018.
This also marks the start of 12 weeks of consultation on the proposals until 5 December 2016, during which people are invited to view and comment on the new boundaries.
The consultation document for Nuneaton is on deposit here at the town hall or alternatively by visiting www.bce2018.org.uk
