Cartoon map with words "Help us draw the line. You've got till 5th December." Published: Tuesday, 15th November 2022

Parliament will be changing the boundaries of some electoral constituencies, and the public are being asked to comment on the latest proposals.

The Boundary Commission’s process is coming towards its end, and this is Oldhamers’ final opportunity to have their say. The consultation will end on Monday 5 December 2022. To see the full information and comment, you can visit the Boundary Commission webpage.

The process is being carried out to rebalance the number of electors who are represented by each member of parliament. So far, there have been no proposals to change the existing constituency boundaries for Oldham East and Saddleworth or for Oldham West and Royton. But it’s been proposed that the two wards that cover Failsworth should be moved.

Although these wards – Failsworth East and Failsworth West – are part of Oldham borough for council election purposes, they’re currently part of the Ashton-under-Lyne parliamentary constituency. But proposals now on the table are that they be moved into the Manchester Central constituency.

Voters can search by postcode to see any proposed changes, or read the proposals for the whole of the North West. This includes the detailed changes proposed for Oldham, and contains maps highlighting the existing and proposed boundaries.

A copy for reference purposes is available at Oldham Library and Lifelong Learning Centre, Greaves Street, Oldham OL1 1AL, first floor.

This process is being run by Boundary Commission for England (BCE), which is an independent and impartial body. This is the third and final phase of its consultation, and the BCE will submit its final recommendations to Parliament by July 2023. Parliament will have the final word on the changes.
