Broxtowe constituency boundary to change?

Share this article

THE boundaries of the Broxtowe MP constituency could be slightly moved if proposals get the green light.

It has been suggested to include Gotham in the constituency, which is near junction 24 of the M1 motorway.

Broxtowe already includes Newthorpe, Giltbrook, Greasley and Kimberley in the north and then goes down through Awsworth, Trowell, Stapleford, Beeston, Toton and Attenborough in the south.

If the recommendations are passed then the next General Election, which is anticipated to be in 2015, would be fought on the new boundaries.

Under the plans, Eastwood would remain in the Ashfield constituency which is unaffected by the changes.

Comments can be made via e mail to up until December 5.
