Hartley to move to Gravesend constituency?
The boundary commission for England has publish its proposals for the new parliamentary boundaries.

The government have reduced the number of seats for the UK parliament from 650 to 600, so this has meant most boundaries are redrawn. All seats must have an electorate between 72,810 and 80,473.

Hartley is currently in Dartford constituency which is within that quota but the neighbouring seats of Gravesend and Sevenoaks are too small. To make up the numbers they propose moving Hartley and Hodsoll Street to the Gravesend. The proposals now go out for consultation.
