Have your say
This is the last chance for people to have their say on the changes and the Commission is encouraging people to look at the proposals and contribute to the review by using the web address above.
Unlike last year's consultation, the Commission will not be hosting public hearings across the country - there is no provision to allow this in the governing legislation.
The Commission has a specifically-designed consultation website as the primary tool for displaying their proposals, and receiving comments on them. This is available on the Boundary Commission’s website.
The consultation period starts ends on 5 December 2016.
