Proposed Boundary Changes for Cardiff North

The Boundary Commission for Wales have published proposals for boundary changes to Welsh constituencies.

The number of constituencies in Wales must be reduced from 40 to 29. By law, every constituency proposed must contain between 71,031 and 78,507 electors.

Cardiff North currently has an electorate of 67,194*. The proposed changes would increase this to 78,014.

We would lose Pontprennau and Old St Mellons while gaining Taffs Well, Cyncoed and Pentwyn.

The Boundary Commission for Wales are hosting several public hearings. The Cardiff hearings are at the Mercure Holland House Hotel on Wednesday 26 October – 10am – 8pm and Thursday 27 October – 9am – 5pm.

You can have your say and find out more at the commission’s consultation portal.
