List of Parliamentary constituencies in Kent


List of Parliamentary constituencies in Kent

The ceremonial county of Kent, (which includes the unitary authority of
Medway),is divided into 17 Parliamentary constituencies- 1 Borough constituencyand 16 County constituencies.

Current proposals by the Boundary Commission for England would retain these 17 constituencies, with changes to realign constituency boundarieswith the boundaries of current local government wards,and to reduce the electoral disparity between constituencies. They have however recommended two name changes:
Gillingham to
Gillingham and Rainham to reflect the similar stature of the two towns,and Medway to
Rochester and Strood to avoid confusion with the larger Medway unitary authority.These changes are expected to be implemented at the United Kingdom general election, 2009/10.
