Consultation on Initial Proposals for the 2023 Parliamentary Boundary Review

Closes 15 Dec 2021

Opened 20 Oct 2021

Overview

The Boundary Commission for Northern Ireland 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).

The Parliamentary Constituencies Act 2020 was passed in December 2020, amending the 1986 Act and bringing the previous 2018 Review to a close without implementation. In line with that legislation, the four UK Boundary Commissions are required to undertake a new review and submit their final reports with recommendations for Parliamentary constituencies before 1st July 2023.

In order to prepare its report, the Commission is carrying out a review process. This process is referred to as the 2023 Review. Public consultation is an important part of the 2023 Review, and the Commission has now published its initial proposals for consultation. A copy of the Initial Proposals Report is available at the link at the bottom of this page. Further information is available at the Commission's website and you can respond to the consultation using this online portal, or via email or post.

Please note that this online portal cannot facilitate the uploading of attachments. If you wish to submit a representation that includes attachments, please submit your response via email to review@boundarycommission.org.uk rather than using the portal.
