Proposed Constituency Boundary Changes
Published Tuesday 13th September 11
Ribble Valley residents are invited to have their say on proposed boundary changes to the Ribble Valley parliamentary constituency.
Parliamentary constituency boundaries across England are to be reviewed following an Act of Parliament.
The new rules means there will be fewer MPs and their constituencies of a more equal size.
England will have 502 MPs rather than the current 533 and the number of electors in each constituency will be between 72,810 and 80,473. The Ribble Valley constituency currently has 77,282 electors.
Simon James, secretary to the Boundary Commission for England, said: "Parliament has set clear rules about how many electors each constituency can have. In the first stage of the review, the commission has produced provisional recommendations. We are now seeking views on these recommendations and residents are invited to comment."
The proposed boundary changes to the Ribble Valley constituency are outlined in full at a display in the Ribble Valley Borough Council Offices in Church Walk, Clitheroe, until Monday, December 5.
The display includes information on how residents can make their views known.
The review must be completed by autumn 2013 and the changes will come into effect at the next general election.
