Boundary changes[edit]

Following their review of parliamentary representation by the Boundary Commission for England, these 11 constituencies are retained with changes to realign constituency boundaries with the boundaries of current local government wards, and to reduce the electoral disparity between constituencies. These changes will be implemented at the United Kingdom general election, 2010.
