Boundaries Scotland consults on changes to constituency boundaries.

Posted on 25 May 2023

Boundaries Scotland has published its provisional proposals for new constituency boundaries for the Scottish Parliament and are seeking residents’ views.

North Ayrshire Council has two parliamentary constituencies within its area - Cunninghame North, which remains unchanged and Cunninghame South where it is proposed that the constituency be enlarged geographically to include part of an East Ayrshire ward which currently sits in the Kilmarnock and Irvine Valley constituency.

Residents can comment on the Boundary Commissions proposals until Saturday 17 June 2023 when the consultation closes.

Craig Hatton, Chief Executive of North Ayrshire Council said: “It is important our communities have the opportunity to express their opinions on these important proposals. Boundaries Scotland are proposing these changes, in the main, to rebalance movements of the population that have taken place since their last review in 2010. I would encourage those with a view, to visit their website and make their voices heard.

 Comments on the provisional proposals can be made on their consultation website https://consult.boundaries.scot/, where the public can view the existing constituency boundaries and proposed changes. Comments can also be submitted via email to boundaries.scot@scottishboundaries.gov.uk.
