PLANS to change the electoral boundary of all three Ealing constituencies have been revealed.
The proposals, put forward by the Boundary Commission for England as part of a redrawing of the UK's electoral map, would see Ealing Central and Acton lose some voters to Southall (the proposed name for Ealing Southall), but gain others at the expense of Ealing North and of Hammersmith.
Southall would gain voters at the expense of Ealing Central and Acton and from Ealing North.
Ealing North wouldn’t gain any voters but instead lose to both Ealing Central and Acton and to Southall.
If the plans are approved residents in areas of Walpole will no longer be represented by Rupa Huq in Ealing Central and Acton but move to Southall and Virendra Sharma.
A full map of the changes across England can be viewed HERE.
Members of the public have been invited to give their feedback on the new boundaries and can do this on the website HERE.
The deadline to give feedback is August 2 2021.
More consultations are planned for 2022 and the Commission will then present their final recommendations to the government in July 2023.
Tim Bowden, Secretary to the Boundary Commission for England, said: “Today’s proposals mark the first time people get to see what the new map of Parliamentary constituencies might look like.
"But they are just the Commission’s initial thoughts.
"Help us draw the line to make the number of electors in each Parliamentary constituency more equal.
"Each constituency we recommend is required by law to contain between 69,724 and 77,062 electors, meaning there will be significant change to current boundaries.
"We want to hear the views of the public to ensure that we get the new boundaries for Parliamentary constituencies right."
