Boundaries

Boundary review

The Boundary Commission for England has recommended that the South Gloucestershire wards should become part of a new Filton and Bradley Stoke, and that Bristol North West should incorporate Stoke Bishop, Henleaze, Westbury on Trym and the remaining parts of Horfield, Lockleaze and Kingsweston, all of which are presently part of Bristol West.

The Bristol North West constituency will remain in a modified form, constructed from the following electoral wards;
