Bye-bye Bisley in Boundary Changes

The initial proposals for boundary changes have been released by the Boundary Commission and they are recommending that Bisley is removed from the Surrey Heath constituency and added to Woking.

In the above map, the RED indicates proposed new Parliamentary constituency boundaries and BLUE are the existing boundaries.

As it happens, we’ve got off quite lightly in Surrey with five constituencies completely unchanged and only one or two wards moving to or from the others.

Other parts of the Country will see much more significant change, and it’s widely reported that the current seats of Jeremy Corbyn and George Osbourne are being scrapped.

It is also being predicted that the changes, which are designed to reduce the number of MPs from 650 to 600, will adversely affect the Labour Party – as if they don’t have enough problems at the moment.

There was some speculation that Surrey might even GAIN a constituency in the changes but that has not happened.

The full report can be found here.
