Have Your Say on South West Bedfordshire Constituency Boundary Changes

Proposed Constituency Boundary Changes

An 8-week consultation lasting until 11 December has begun. Under the Boundary Commission's proposals, South West Bedfordshire would be drastically changed.

Dunstable and the villages in the south would be split. The Caddington CBC ward would be added to Luton South, and Houghton Regis would be put with Luton North. Aspley and Woburn, and Toddington wards would be added. The new constituency would have an electorate of 73,699 according to the Commission's data, compared to the current size and shape that has an electorate of 76,959.

The new boundaries would only affect the MP you vote for. It would not affect who you pay your council tax to, or your address.

◘ One of the aims of the proposed changes is to even out the number of people in each constituency.
◘ The current 650 MPs would be reduced to 600.
◘ Among the proposals, Islington North represented by Jeremy Corbyn for 34 years, would disappear. And Boris Johnson's Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency would go.
