Households across Horsham District are being asked to take part in 2023 Boundary Commission survey

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England wants to hear what residents and local organisations think about their proposed new constituency boundaries for Horsham District Council. A 10-week consultation on the proposals will run from 22 February to 4 April 2022.

Horsham District Council has been advised by the Boundary Commission that constituencies are changing. The number of people represented by an MP is much higher in some constituencies than in others. The 2023 Boundary Review will rebalance the number of electors in each constituency, and increase the overall number of constituencies in England.

The main changes for certain areas of the Horsham District included in the proposals are:

The Horsham Parliamentary constituency stays mainly the same, but the Arundel and South Down constituency becomes Arundel and Littlehampton.

The wards in the southerly part of the Horsham District move to a new parliamentary constituency called Shoreham.

You are all invited to have your say and help shape these suggestions.

Please go to the Boundary Commission for England Consultation Portal to view the proposed new constituencies and submit your feedback online.

In addition to the online public consultation, public meetings are also taking place for those who wish to respond in person. The nearest one to us is in Crawley on Monday 14 March. For more details please visit the Boundary Commission website.

You can also respond by writing to: Boundary Commission for England, 35 Great Smith Street, London, SW1P 3BQ, by calling 020 7276 1102 or by emailing information@boundarycommissionengland.gov.uk

Responses to the previous consultation are also available to view on the Boundary Commission for England website.
