Overview

The Boundary Commission for Northern Ireland (BCNI) is an independent and impartial public body, which reviews all UK Parliamentary constituency boundaries in Northern Ireland according to rules established by the Parliamentary Constituencies Act 1986 (as amended). In accordance with the Parliamentary Constituencies Act 2020, the BCNI is required to review Parliamentary constituency boundaries and submit its final report with recommendations before 1st July 2023.

Public consultation is an important part of the 2023 Review. As part of its statutory duties, the Commission has carried out initial and secondary consultations, including public hearings. Having considered the written representations received during the initial consultation and  written representations and records of the public hearings made during the secondary consultation periodthe Commission has revised its initial proposals. Its Revised Proposals have now been published - a copy is available at the link at the bottom of this page.

The third statutory consultation period provides an opportunity to submit written representations with respect to the Commission’s Revised Proposals, and with respect to the records of the public hearings. You can respond to the consultation using this online portal, or using the response template which is available on the Commission's website. 

The Commission welcomes representations that include other attachments such as maps or supporting documentation. While the Citizen Space platform cannot facilitate the uploading of attachments, these can be emailed separately to review@boundarycommission.org.uk.
