Review details

What do you need to know?

  • The number of constituencies in the South West will increase from 55 to 58
  • By law, every constituency we propose must contain between 69,724 and 77,062 Parliamentary electors (as at 2 March 2020)
  • As far as possible, we try to have regard to local ties, geographic factors, local government boundaries (as they were known at 1 December 2020), existing constituencies, and minimising disruption caused by proposed change
  • We use local government wards as the building blocks for proposed constituencies, but will consider splitting a ward where there is a strong case for doing so that helps us better respect the factors above
