Mine has….! I am in the East Devon constituency from the date of the next General Election, when the new constituency boundaries come into effect, I’ll be in the Tiverton and Honiton constituency (although still in the East Devon local government district).
The Boundary Commission is legally required, by the Parliamentary Constituencies Act 1986 (as amended by the Boundary Commissions Act 1992), to conduct a general review of all the constituencies in England every eight to twelve years to ensure the size and composition of constituencies are as fair as possible. The Commission’s recommendations throughout the review must by law be based on the numbers of electors on the electoral registers on that date.
The new-look Ordnance Survey Election Maps website is a fantastic resource for for use by teachers, MPs, councillors, candidates and party workers. Users can select from a variety of administrative and electoral boundaries that can be overlaid on the mapping.
The East Devon constituency will change quite a lot – click here to see a map of the old boundaries. It currently includes Axminster, Seaton and all the small villages near me including Stockland, Membury, Dalwood, Yarcombe, Shute, Kilmington, Offwell, Dalwood and Cotleigh. All of these places will soon be in the Tiverton and Honiton constituency. The current MP for Honiton and Tiverton is the conservative Angela Browning. Hugo Swire (also Tory) represents the East Devon constituency.
The new East Devon area will include Ottery St Mary, West Hill, Broadclyst, Poltimore, Talaton and Clyst Hydon. If you would like to check which area you are in – see the East Devon council website.
