Boundary changes[edit]

Current proposals by the Boundary Commission for England would retain these 6 constituencies, with changes to realign constituency boundaries with the boundaries of current local government wards, and to reduce the electoral disparity between constituencies. Although the changes are small, the expanded Cotswold constituency will be called The Cotswolds. These changes will be implemented at the United Kingdom general election, 2010.
