So, we have the District Council ward boundary review underway right now but there is also a Parliamentary constituency boundary review underway too which has seen much greater press.
This, if approved, will see a reduction of MP’s from 650 to 600 each having a similar number of registered electors each having 71,031 to 78,507 electors. the commission is due to report to Parliament in September 2018.
This consultation closes on 11 December 2017. This is the last opportunity for people to comment on the new Parliamentary constituencies. The current District Council ward reviews are not going to affect the outcome of this one.
Current ward boundary for Meon Valley Constituency
Proposed ward boundary for the new East Hampshire Constituency
The new boundary follows the EHDC boundary in the south of the District but foes not extend up as far as Alton.

This change would effectively split the Meon Valley ward up between adjacent constituencies so it remains to be seen 1) if it happens and 2) if George would pick up a new seat.
