2023 Parliamentary Boundaries Review

Map of Stroud area showing exisiting and proposed boundaries

The Boundary Commission for England have published their initial proposals for new Parliamentary constituency boundaries and are seeking local knowledge to help reshape the map.

Parliamentary constituencies are changing to make the number of electors in each one more equal, and the number of constituencies in England will increase from 533 to 543.

Under the proposals Stroud Town will remain in the Stroud constituency. An area to the north and east of the town, which includes Bisley, Eastcombe, Slad, Cranham and Haresfield will join the Cotswolds constituency. To the south of the Stroud district, Wotton-Under-Edge, Hillesley and Kingswood will move into the Stroud constituency.

An eight-week consultation process has started to enable people to give their views on the proposed changes to both the constituency boundaries and their names.

You can comment on the proposals onlineFor key updates follow @BCEReviews on Twitter.

Members of our Consultations and Highways Committee will be looking at the proposals at a meeting on 12th July and would be interested to hear the views of local residents before writing a response to the consultation, so do please share your thoughts with us by email.
