The 2023 Review of Parliamentary constituencies was formally launched in January 2021. Due to population changes since the last review, the number of electors in some constituencies is much higher than in others. The Commission is required by legislation to ensure that the number of electors in each constituency is more equal; in doing so, the number of constituencies in England will increase from 533 to 543.

On 8 June 2021 the Boundary Commission for England published their initial proposals for new constituencies and have commenced an eight week consultation period, where they want people to tell them whether they agree with the proposed changes, ensuring those responses capture the views and knowledge of local residents.

Below are the proposed changes that affect the constituencies within North Tyneside.  If you wish to make comment on these proposals, at any time, you can:
