Folkestone and Hythe Constituency Map

Proposed New Folkestone and Hythe Constituency Boundaries

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is redrawing constituency boundaries in order to rebalance the number of electors represented by each MP, and a final consultation on proposed new constituencies is now open.

A new revised map of constituency proposals, which takes into account feedback sent in by the public on the initial proposals, has been published on the consultation website

The proposed revisions to Folkestone and Hythe constituency leave the seat broadly as it is, but as it now contains too many electors removes the wards of Saxon Shore, North Downs West and North Downs East which are added to a new Ashford seat. These proposals have no impact on which Council a ward relates to, just which MP they vote for / are represented by in Parliament.
