Check out the Boundary Explorer here!

The 2018 Review of Parliamentary Constituencies started on 24 February 2016. The number of Parliamentary constituencies across the UK will reduce to 600 in accordance with schedule 2 of the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Act 2011. In Northern Ireland, the decrease will be from 18 to 17 constituencies. This will mean the redrawing of the existing constituency boundaries.

Any person or body wishing to make representations about these Provisional Proposals should do so in writing to the Boundary Commission on or before 28 November 2016. The Commission is required to submit its report on final recommendations to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland no later than 1 October 2018. More information on the review and consultation.

This dataset contains data relating to the provisional proposals for new parliamentary boundaries from the Boundary Commission for Northern Ireland. It has been produced using data from the September 2016 Provisional Proposals Report (PDF), provisional proposed boundaries (shapefile) and 2012 Ward boundaries (shapefile), and therefore also contains content from Land and Property Services.
