Parliamentary Constituencies Boundary Review 2023
The Boundary Commission’s initial proposals to change the Parliamentary constituencies across England have been published and will change the current boundaries for constituencies in the City of Salford.
In these initial proposals:
- Salford and Eccles would gain Broughton, but lose Swinton and Wardley and Eccles, and be renamed Salford.
- Worsley and Eccles South would gain Swinton and Wardley, Eccles, and the ward of Astley Mosley Common from the borough of Wigan. It would lose Walkden North, Walkden South and Little Hulton, which would become part of a Bolton South and Walkden ward.
- Two of Salford’s wards, Broughton and Kersal and Broughton Park, which are currently in the constituency of Blackley and Broughton, would be separated. With Broughton going into Salford, and Kersal and Broughton Park going in to Bury South.
The proposals will go out for public consultation over an eight-week period, from 8 June 2021 to 2 August 2021, where alternative proposals could be adopted by the Commission, based on a variety of reasons such as community ties or strong boundaries. In the past the commission have accepted counter proposals and objections before publishing it’s final plan.
