Proposals reshaping local parliamentary constituencies have been put forward today, in a bid to create equal-sized seats for MPs.

Across England, there are currently 533 seats, but proposals set out by the Boundary Commission for England will see that number fall to 501.

In Bromley, the proposals will see boundary’s reshaped across London’s largest borough.

The proposals would not change local authorities.

The report explains: “We were able to retain three constituencies with different configurations in the borough of Bromley.

“Our proposed Orpington constituency retains all seven wards from the existing constituency, and adds the Cray Valley West ward from the existing Bromley and Chislehurst constituency.

“We propose a Bromley and Chislehurst constituency, which retains five wards from the existing constituency, and includes the two wards of Bromley Common and Keston, and Hayes and Coney Hall, from the existing Beckenham constituency.

“We also propose a Beckenham constituency, which retains four wards from the existing constituency, and adds the wards of Clock House, and Penge and Cator from the existing Lewisham West and Penge constituency.”

A public meeting on the proposals will be held in Bromley at the United Reform Church Hall on October 20 and 21.
