STOCKTON Borough residents are being encouraged to have their say on proposals from the Boundary Commission that review the boundaries of parliamentary constituencies.
The review proposes to reduce the number of constituencies in the UK from 650 to 600 and will require that every constituency must have an electorate that is no smaller than 71,031 and no larger than 78,507.
The first stage of the consultation runs until 5 December 2016.
To comment on the proposals, residents are encouraged to write directly to the Boundary Commission for England at 35 Great Smith Street, London, SW1P 3BQ.
Alternatively, residents can visit the website at www.bce2018.org.uk or attend a public hearing in the North East area:

- Thursday 17 and Friday 18 November – King’s Ballroom, Mercure Darlington, Kings Hotel, 9-12 Priestgate, Darlington, DL1 1NW
