2018 Boundary Review - West Midlands Region

  • Period: 03 March 2017 - 27 March 2017
  • Status: Closed
  • Audiences: Everyone
  • Topics: Democracy and elections
  • Type: Public

Last year, the Boundary Commission for England published and consulted on its initial proposals for new constituency boundaries, and received nearly 20,000 responses to that consultation. The next stage of the review is for the commission to publish all those representations, so that others may comment on the responses received so far.  Their consultation period has commenced, and will remain open until Monday 27 March 2017.

Following the secondary consultation, the commission will be considering all representations received from both consultations, and wconsider whether any revisions are needed. If they decide to revise the proposals, they will consult on the revised boundaries. It is expected that any such consultation would happen towards the end of 2017, or in early 2018.

A final consultation was launched on 17 October. 

All representations will be published on the Boundary Commission website. The commission would like to encourage you to take time to see what others have said about the initial proposals, and add your views.
