Although the boundary changes are now very unlikely to go ahead (as the Liberal Democrats have confirmed they are opposing them after the Conservatives went back on their Lords reform agreement), the Boundary Commission is still proceeding with its work.
The latest proposals are out, and Labour’s idea of splitting Cheadle Hulme down the middle has been firmly rejected.
- Cheadle constituency will gain Davenport and Cale Green, but lose Stepping Hill. It keeps Cheadle & Gatley, Cheadle Hulme North, Cheadle Hulme South, Heald Green, Bramhall North and Bramhall South.
- Hazel Grove constituency loses Bredbury and Woodley but gains Poynton (in Cheshire East) and Stepping Hill.
- Stockport constituency gains Reddish South along with Bredbury & Woodley and loses Davenport & Cale Green
- Reddish North moves into a new constituency which includes Gorton, Levenshulme, Longsight, Rusholme and Fallowfield, with the constituency being named Manchester Gorton and Reddish North.
As I say, none of this is likely to happen as there is no majority in parliament to get the boundary changes through, but the work continues and there is now a further opportunity for anyone who wishes to comment on the revised plans.
The Boundary Commission has published maps for each of the proposed new constituencies.
