London

The 2013 Review of Parliamentary constituency boundaries will introduce substantial changes. It will reduce the number of constituencies in England from 533 to 502 and make sure that each constituency has a similar number of registered electors. Read more about the Review.

What is changing in London?

We have revised 50 of the 68 constituencies we proposed in September 2011. After careful consideration, we have decided not to make any revisions to the boundaries of the remaining 18 constituencies. In some instances, however, we have revised our proposed names for these constituencies.

Under our revised proposals, three constituencies in London would remain the same as they are under the existing arrangements.

We have revised our initial proposal for a constituency that crosses the River Lee between Chingford and Edmonton, proposing instead a constituency that crosses the Lee between Bow and Stratford.

We have revised our proposal to link the City of London with Islington, proposing instead to link it with the City of Westminster.

We have revised our initial proposals for Greenwich, retaining central Greenwich in a single constituency.

We have revised our initial proposals for constituencies containing the towns of Streatham, Thamesmead, Edmonton, Chingford, Romford, and Wimbledon, and those covering the Borough of Lambeth.

After careful consideration, we have not revised our initial proposals to include the College Park and Old Oak ward in a Willesden constituency, Feltham in a Hayes and Feltham constituency, or the Heathfield and Whitton wards in a Teddington and Hanworth constituency, though we do propose to rename this constituency.
