Proposed constituency boundary changes

Consultation on proposed changes to MPs constituency boundaries – 5th December deadline please don’t delay in feeding back on these proposals

There is a consultation about the proposals to change the constituency boundaries for M.Ps. If you put in your postcode on the Boundary Commission for England website you can see how the boundaries would be changed.

You can see below that they propose to move us in to Edmonton constituency that runs all the way to Chingford which we think is not the right change and it makes much more sense for the boundaries to remain as they are. This boundary change would add 10,000 people to the current number of people covered by Enfield Southgate constituency. The Enfield Southgate constituency would change to be Enfield Wood Green and stretch from the M25 in the north to Turnpike Lane in the south which doesn’t make sense either. Please feed back on these change to make sure these changes are not agreed.

There is a campaign to highlight these proposed changes with a poster that you can see here. Also Cllr. Maria Alexandrou has put together a very comprehensive list of reasons why this boundary change is not in Winchmore Hill’s best interests. Please take a look at this if you plan to object to help you provide reasons for your objections. You can see this document here.
