2018 Review of UK Parliament constituencies
We have published our Initial Proposals for UK Parliament Constituencies in Scotland. The public consultation on our proposals lasts for 12 weeks, until 11 January 2017. Further information on our proposals and details of how to participate in the consultation are available in our 2018 Review section.
The Boundary Commission for Scotland is responsible for reviews of:
- constituencies in Scotland for the UK Parliament; and
- constituencies and regions for the Scottish Parliament.
Full reviews of UK Parliament constituencies are carried out every 5 years. Full reviews of Scottish Parliament boundaries are carried out approximately every 10 years, with interim reviews of selected areas sooner if necessary.
The Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland is a separate body which is responsible for reviewing local government boundaries in Scotland. Details of its work can be found at http://www.lgbc-scotland.gov.uk.
