The 2023 Boundary Review:

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) are overseeing a review of parliamentary constituencies to ensure each one has roughly the same number of electors. As part of this process, the number of constituencies in England will increase to 543. The Commission is required by law to make sure that each constituency in England has between 69,724 and 77,062 electors, excluding two ‘protected’ constituencies for the Isle of Wight.

From 22 February to 4 April 2022, they are holding a six-week secondary consultation on our initial proposals, and they want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to provide their views.

The proposed changes for the Dartford and the responses received during the first consultation can be found on their website at .
