Boundary Commission makes revised proposals for constituencies

The Boundary Commission today published their revised proposals for the new electoral map of the area. As previously mentioned they had proposed that Hartley and Hodsoll Street should move from Dartford to Gravesend constituencies, to make Gravesend the size required by the new law.

The replies they received were mostly in favour of Hartley remaining in Dartford constituency, although the national Conservative and Labour parties were both in favour.

some suggested moving Swanscombe from Dartford to Gravesend instead. The commission rejected this because they said the numbers didn't stack up and they don't like crossing borough boundaries if it can be avoided. They did agree with representations to put Hextable and not Horton Kirby in the Dartford seat. They also agreed to call the Gravesend constituency Gravesham instead to reflect the fact that it was more than just Gravesend.

People now have a final chance to make representations before 12 December. See Boundary Commission website.
