Changes to Tooting constituency boundaries

You might have seen the news about changes to the boundaries of MPs' constituencies. The Boundary Commission has released their proposals for redrawing these boundaries to reduce the number of MPs.

For Tooting, they propose adding a new triangle at the  bottom corner. It's unlikely to affect what's a fairly solid Labour heartland, but you can comment on the proposals on the consultation website. (Thanks to Rob on Twitter for pointing out the original post had the old and new boundaries back to front!)


More information

"The number of constituencies in London must reduce from 73 to 68. By law, every constituency we propose must contain between 71,031 and 78,507 electors

During the consultation we will be visiting London and holding five public hearings
