Have your say on constituency boundaries.

Posted on 19 Apr 2024

Boundaries Scotland has published its 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 and Cunninghame South.

In has proposed that Cunninghame South will be enlarged geographically to include part of an East Ayrshire ward which currently sits in the Kilmarnock and Irvine Valley constituency.  It will retain the name of Cunninghame South.

Cunninghame North will remain unchanged.

Boundaries Scotland consulted on provisional proposals for constituencies between May and June 2023 and this is the latest review.

Comments on the revised proposals can be made on the Boundaries Scotland consultation hub https://consult.boundaries.scot/

Comments can also be made in writing to Boundaries Scotland, Thistle House, 91 Haymarket Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 5HD, or email boundaries.scot@scottishboundaries.gov.uk.

All comments should be submitted to Boundaries Scotland no later than Wednesday 15 May 2024 which is the end of the statutory consultation period.

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.”
