Yorkshire and the Humber

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 Yorkshire and the Humber?

We have revised 37 of the 50 constituencies we proposed in September 2011. After careful consideration, we have decided not to make any revisions to the boundaries of the remaining 13 constituencies. In some instances, however, we have revised our proposed names for these constituencies.

Under our revised proposals, 15 constituencies in Yorkshire and the Humber would remain the same as they are under the existing arrangements.

We have revised our proposals for North Yorkshire and the City of York, with the result that now all eight of these existing constituencies would be retained unchanged from the existing arrangements.

We have revised our proposals for all nine constituencies in the Humberside subregion, to provide for a better reflection of the existing constituencies in Humberside and east Yorkshire.

We have revised our proposals for constituencies in the metropolitan boroughs of Barnsley, Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds, and Wakefield.

Our proposals include a new crosscounty boundary constituency in West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire.

After careful consideration, we have not revised any of our initial proposals for the constituencies in the metropolitan boroughs of Rotherham and Sheffield.
