2010 boundary changes

In the Fifth Review the Boundary Commission for England recommended that Nottinghamshire retained its current constituencies, with changes only to reflect revisions to local authority ward boundaries and to reduce the electoral disparity between constituencies..

Proposed boundary changes

See 2023 Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies for further details.

Following the abandonment of the Sixth Periodic Review (the 2018 review), the Boundary Commission for England formally launched the 2023 Review on 5 January 2021 and published their initial proposals on 8 June 2021. [3] Initial proposals were published on 8 June 2021 and, following two periods of public consultation, revised proposals were published on 8 November 2022. Final proposals will be published by 1 July 2023.

The commission has proposed retaining the current number of constituencies in Nottinghamshire, as detailed below, with minor boundary changes to reflect changes to electoral wards within the county and to bring the electorates within the statutory range. As Nottingham North now contains wards in the Borough of Broxtowe, it would become Nottingham North and Kimberley. It is proposed that Sherwood is renamed Sherwood Forest. [4] [5]
