Elections and voting

This section of the site provides information on elections and voting.  

The Boundary Commission for England has published its initial proposals for new constituency boundaries.

There is now a 12-week consultation, starting September 13 2016, for members of the public to see the proposed changes and give feedback.

You can view the proposals and maps for the boundaries of all English constituencies and make any comments on the Boundary Commission for England website.

These proposals have been made by the Boundary Commission and not the council. The council will respond to the proposals during the consultation period.
