Changes to Constituency Boundaries?

Do you live in Parkway, specifically from No 22 or above that number?

Or, perhaps in Elm Walk in an odd number from 49 or above?

Or in Elm Walk, in an even number from 80 or above?

Or Meadow Close (even numbers 66 and above)? 

If so, then the Boundary Commission proposes moving you from the “Wimbledon” constituency (MP: Stephen Hammond) to “Mitcham and Morden” (MP: Siobhain McDonagh) .

The Boundary Commission has put its proposed constituency changes out for consultation. You can find out more at  https://www.bcereviews.org.uk/ 

You can submit your comments online, via the Commission’s website, but all comments must be submitted by. Monday 2nd August 2021. Alternatively, you can write to the Boundary Commission for England, 35 Great Smith Street, London, SW1P 3BQ. 

We think these streets have been reallocated simply to even up the numbers between the two constituencies. However, most residents in these streets do, we are sure, logically feel part of the Wimbledon constituency, which encompasses most of the Raynes Park and West Barnes areas, as against being in either Morden and Mitcham, which are both much further away. 

 We invite all our members to let the Commission know what you think of these proposals, regardless of whether you’re directly affected or not.
