As you will be aware, the Boundary Commission for England has recently announced its draft proposals for new constituency boundaries to come into effect at the next General Election. There are two objectives: to reduce the number of MP's by fifty and to equalise constituency boundaries - ensuring that votes are of equal value across the county.
The current proposals which are being consulted upon, propose far-reaching changes to the boundaries of many constituencies, including ours. In relation to Corby & East Northamptonshire, it is proposed that Irthlingborough is removed from the constituency. More »
Following the announcement made on the 13th September our MP Tom Pursglove pledged to take local soundings and make further comment in due course. Tom agrees with the equalisation of boundaries but he would prefer for the constituency not to be altered at all, however as things stand, the current constituency is too large, relative to the new thresholds that are in place. Tom is urging the Boundary Commission for England to look again at all options and come up with something that displaces as few voters as possible across Northamptonshire and better respects existing boundaries along with geographical, local government and historical synergies and connections. He is also strongly encouraging them to rename the constituency 'Corby & East Northamptonshire'.
If you agree with this position, you might wish to write to the Commission by the 5th December 2016 so that your views can be taken into account as part of the ongoing consultation process. You can do so by going to www.bce2018.org.uk or write via the details below:
