Electoral boundary reviews
Details of the boundary reviews of our county council divisions and of the parliamentary constituency.
Review of County Council division boundaries
On 26 May 2015, the Local Government Boundary Commission for England started the first period of consultation for carrying out an electoral review of Hampshire County Council.
The Commission's final recommendations proposed that Hampshire County Council's 78 councillors should represent 74 single-member divisions and two-member divisions.
The recommendations have been approved by Parliament and the necessary Order has been made. The new electoral arrangements come into force at the local elections scheduled for 4 May, 2017.
You can find out more information on the Local Government Boundary Commission website.
Review of parliamentary constituency boundaries - consultation
In 2016, the Boundary Commission for England published and consulted on its initial proposals for new constituency boundaries.
The next stage of the review is to publish the representations made through the consultation so that others may comment on them. The representations are open for comment until Monday 27 March, 2017 and you can find them on the Boundary Commission website.
Following this consultation, the Commission will consider the representations received from both the consultations and will consider if it needs to make any changes. If more changes are made, there will be a further consultation towards the end of 2017 or early in 2018.
The final recommendations for new parliamentary boundaries will be made to Parliament in September, 2018.
