The 2013 Boundary Commission Review of Parliamentary constituency boundaries will introduce substantial changes. It will reduce the number of constituencies in England from 533 to 502 and make sure that each constituency has a similar number of registered electors.
This consultation on the initial proposals will run from 13th September 2011 to 5th December 2011.
The East Midlands region has been allocated 44 constituencies – a reduction of two from the current arrangement.
There will be some changes to the Blaby constituency parliamentary boundary. We will gain Earl Shilton, Burbage Sketchley and Stretton and Burbage St Catherines and Lash Hill with Winstanley, Ravenhurst and Fosse and Millfield moving to Leicester West.
