The Boundary Commission has announced revised proposals for changes to constituency seats.

The Dagenham and Rainham seat, currently held by Jon Cruddas, would consist of Alibon, Eastbrook, Heath, River, Valence, Village and Whalebone, in addition to three Havering wards.

Abbey, Becontree, Eastbury, Gascoigne, Goresbrook, Longbridge, Mayesbrook, Parsloes and Thames would join with two Newham wards to become Barking and Beckton.

Chadwell Heath would join seven Havering wards as the Romford constituency.

The changes, planned to be used from the next general election, are taking place to balance the number of voters in each constituency. They will also see the total number of seats cut nationally from 650 to 600.

A consultation on the proposals runs until December 11. Visit bce2018.org.uk for more and to have your say.
