Constituency Boundaries in East Sussex which took effect at the 2010 General Election

Constituency Boundaries

Constituency Boundary changes which took effect at the 2010 General Election, increased the electorate by some 9,000 in the Heathfield area in the West, and decreasing it by 3,700 in the East with the removal of the Brede Valley Ward.

2018 Boundary Review.
The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is an independent and impartial non-departmental public body, which is responsible for reviewing Parliamentary constituency boundaries in England. It has the task of periodically reviewing all the Parliamentary constituencies in England.

It is currently conducting a review on the basis of rules most recently updated by Parliament in 2011. These latest rules involve a significant reduction in the number of constituencies in England and require constituencies to comply with new parameters, so far as the number of electors in each constituency is concerned.

The BCE is required to make a formal report to the Government during September 2018, recommending any changes that it believes are appropriate to the distribution, size, shape, name or designation of constituencies in England. This review is therefore referred to as 'the 2018 Review'.

The Government will turn the recommendations of the BCE into draft legislation, which is then presented to Parliament. If Parliament approves the legislation, the recommended changes will be implemented for the next General Election after the date on which the legislation is passed.
