The 2013 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. Read more about the Review.
What is changing in the West Midlands?
We have revised 26 of the 54 constituencies we proposed in September 2011 and have decided to make no change to the boundaries of the remaining 28 constituencies, although, in some cases, we have revised our proposed names for constituencies.
We have proposed ten constituencies that would remain the same as the existing constituencies.
We have revised our proposals for the Sutton Coldfield constituency, which would be the same as the existing constituency.
Our revised North Warwickshire constituency no longer crosses the county boundary of Warwickshire.
Much of Birmingham remains unaltered, and we consider that our proposals in the City of Wolverhampton unite more of the town of Bilston in a single constituency.
In Staffordshire, our revised proposal for the Newcastle-under-Lyme constituency contains more of the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme than under our initial proposals.
We have revised or proposals for the Telford area, thereby including more wards of the town of Telford in a single constituency than under our initial proposals.
We have revised our proposals in the Malvern area to include wards to the south of Great Malvern in the same constituency as the town.
