'Luton North and Houghton Regis' - Proposed Constituency Boundary Changes

Proposed New Constituency Boundary of 'Luton North and Houghton Regis'

An 8-week consultation lasting until 11 December has begun. Under the Boundary Commission's proposals, Houghton Regis would be in a new constituency that would be called 'Luton North and Houghton Regis".

In the last consultation, the Commission had given this proposed constituency the name "Luton North And Houghton".

The new boundaries would only affect the MP you vote for. It would not affect who you pay your council tax to, or your address.



◘ One of the aims of the proposed changes is to even out the number of people in each constituency.
Luton North currently has an electorate of 64,552 according to the Commission's data. The new number for Luton North and Houghton Regis would be 71,188.

◘ The current 650 MPs would be reduced to 600.

◘ Among the proposals, Islington North represented by Jeremy Corbyn for 34 years, would disappear. And Boris Johnson's Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency would go.
