The 2018 Review

The BCE have the task of periodically reviewing the boundaries of all the Parliamentary constituencies in England.

They are currently conducting a review on the basis of rules set by Parliament in 2011. The rules tell us that we must make recommendations for new Parliamentary constituency boundaries in September 2018.

 They also result in a significant reduction in the number of constituencies in England (from 533 to 501), and require that every constituency – apart from two specified exceptions – must have an electorate that is no smaller than 71,031 and no larger than 78,507.

Revised Proposals – 17th October 2017

The BCE published their Revised Proposals for the new Parliamentary constituency boundaries in England on 17th October 2017.

 

Revised Proposals - what this now means for Doncaster:

The review was based on the Parliamentary Electorate as of the 1st December 2015, at that time all three constituencies were just below the required electorate of between 71,031 – 78,507 and therefore these changes were proposed to bring those constituencies up to the required electorate size.

  • There are no revisions made to the original proposal that the existing Doncaster Central constituency only be changed by the inclusion within it of the divided Borough of Doncaster ward of Stainforth & Barnby Dun from the existing Doncaster North constituency. This change brings the Doncaster Central constituency within 5% of the electoral quota.
  • There is no longer a change of name to the Doncaster North and Don Valley constituencies to Doncaster West and Doncaster East.
  • There have been revisions made to the proposed wards contained within Don Valley and Doncaster North which now closely match with the existing pattern of current constituencies.
  • Revisions have been made to the initial proposal for Doncaster North to now contain Dearne South ward rather than Dearne North ward from the Borough of Barnsley.
