Boundary Commission proposals leaked: Barnet unchanged; Enfield Bowes Ward moves to Hornsey and Wood Green

Link to document

"We are consulting on our initial proposals for a 12-week period, from 13 September 2011 to 5 December 2011. We encourage everyone to use this opportunity to contribute to the design of the new constituencies – the more public views we hear, the more informed our decisions will be when analysing all the views we receive. 

"38. In Haringey, we noted that the Hornsey and Wood Green constituency could be left unchanged, but in order to accommodate changes elsewhere, we propose to include one ward (Stroud Green) in the Tottenham constituency. We also propose to include one Enfield ward (Bowes) from the existing Enfield, Southgate constituency in the Hornsey and Wood Green constituency. 

"39. In Enfield, we noted that the borough was too large for two constituencies. We propose an Enfield Southgate constituency containing eight wards from the centre and west of the borough, including two (Bush Hill Park and Haselbury) from the existing Edmonton constituency. We also decided to create an expanded Enfield North constituency containing eight wards, including one (Ponders End) from the existing Edmonton constituency. 

"43. In Barnet, we noted that two of the three existing constituencies had electorates within 5% of the electoral quota. We do not propose to alter either the Chipping Barnet or Hendon constituencies. To increase the electorate of the Finchley and Golders Green constituency, we propose to include one Camden ward (Fortune Green)."
