Please see attached submission - conclusion copied below:

This alternative scheme moves around 150,000 fewer electors between constituencies than the Commission’s proposals; it better aligns with local authority boundaries, in particular reducing the number of constituencies crossing top-level (County/Unitary) boundaries; it maintains or improves community ties; it increases the number of unchanged constituencies (other than aligning to new ward boundaries) from 4 to 9; it increases the number of constituencies comprising wards from a single local authority; like the Commission proposal it avoids any constituency comprising wards from more than three local authorities; but unlike the Commission proposal (which completely divides the existing West Suffolk and Bury St Edmunds constituencies), this alternative ensures that every existing constituency is clearly preserved with minimal changes.
