The BCE is required by law to carry out an independent and impartial review of all constituencies in England, to rebalance the number of electors in each constituency. The 2023 Boundary Review also requires that the number of constituencies in England to increase from 533 to 543.

The closing date for this second consultation is Monday 4 April 2022.
What will happen next?
The BCE commission will analyse responses from the first and second consultations, who will then produce a report deciding on whether the initial proposals should change and detailing any suggested changes.
If the commission’s recommendations vary, they will hold a further four-week written consultation on their revised proposals inviting views. Those comments will be published along with the commission’s final report, which will be sent to parliament by July 2023 and subsequently made law.
