2018 Boundary Review - Initial proposals for Parliamentary constituency boundaries

On 13 September 2016 the Boundary Commission for England published its initial proposals for new parliamentary constituency boundaries. This marks the start of 12 weeks of consultation on those proposals, during which the Commission is inviting people to view and comment on the new boundaries. The Commission is an independent public body, and must make its recommendations for new Parliamentary boundaries to Parliament in September 2018. This is the first of three rounds of consultation which will be undertaken before that date.

The plans showing the proposals for North Yorkshire constituencies, and for the Harrogate and Knaresborough constituency in particular, are now on display in the reception area at the Council Offices, Crescent Gardens in Harrogate.

For the 2018 Review the Commission is promoting use of a consultation website as the primary tool for displaying proposals and receiving comments on them. This is available at www.bce2018.org.uk. The proposals and maps for the whole of the district – and the rest of England – are published on the website.
