The 2018 Review of Parliamentary Constituencies: Revised Proposals published


The Boundary Commission for England is carrying out a review of boundaries for Parliamentary constituencies in England. This review is known as the '2018 Review' as their final report must be submitted to Parliament in September 2018. The Commission's initial proposals were published on 12 September 2016. The proposals involved a radical change in Harrow's representation as follows:

Harrow and Stanmore (77,624 electors) comprising:
The LB of Harrow wards: Canons, Greenhill, Harrow Weald, Hatch End, Headstone North, Headstone South, Marlborough, Stanmore Park, Wealdstone, West Harrow.


Kenton (73,722 electors) comprising:
The LB of Harrow wards: Belmont, Edgware, Kenton East, Kenton West, Queensbury.
The LB of Brent wards: Barnhill, Fryent, Kenton, Queensbury.


Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner (74,037 electors) comprising:
The LB of Harrow wards: Pinner, Pinner South, Rayners Lane.
The LB of Hillingdon wards: Cavendish, Eastcote and East Ruislip, Manor, Northwood, Northwood Hills, West Ruislip.


Wembley and Harrow on the Hill (77,515 electors) comprising:
The LB of Harrow wards: Harrow on the Hill, Roxbourne, Roxeth.
The LB of Brent wards: Alperton, Northwick Park, Preston, Sudbury, Tokyngton, Wembley Central.


The consultation period for these initial proposals ended on 5 December 2016. The Commission organised and catologued representations received before publishing them in spring 2017.

 

Following the result of the General Election held in June 2017 there has been widespread speculation that the Review may be abondoned or voted down in Parliament. However, the work of the Commission has continued and on 17 October 2017 they published their revised proposals for Parliamentary boundaries: this included major changes to their intial plans for Harrow which would now be covered by three, rather than four, constituencies (in whole or in part) as follows:

 

Harrow North (77,308 electors) comprising:

The LB of Harrow wards: Belmont, Canons, Harrow Weald, Headstone North, Headstone South, Marlborough, Rayners Lane, Stanmore Park, Wealdstone, West Harrow.

 

Harrow South and Kenton (78,246 electors) comprising:

The LB of Harrow wards: Edgware, Greenhill, Harrow on the Hill, Kenton East, Kenton West, Queensbury, Roxbourne, Roxeth.

The LB of Brent wards: Kenton, Queensbury.

 

Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner (71,331 electors) comprising:

The LB of Harrow wards: Hatch End, Pinner, Pinner South.

The LB of Hillingdon wards: Eastcote and East Ruislip, Harefield, Ickenham, Northwood, Northwood Hills, West Ruislip.

 

The Commission's conultation on their revised proposals closed 11 December 2017; their final proposals will be published in September 2018.
