Louth and Horncastle Boundary changes

Constituency Boundary changes
On 27th June 2023, the final changes to constituency boundaries were submitted to the UK parliament by the Boundary Commission for England.  Louth and Horncastle has some minor changes, unlike some of our neighbouring constituencies.

The number of constituencies in the East Midlands will increase from 46 to 47 and, by law, every constituency must contain between 69,724 and 77,062 Parliamentary electors (as at 2 March 2020).

Louth and Horncastle has been adjusted to have 75,959 electors.

We retain our name, and gain a few hundred voters from Boston and Skegness into Halton Holegate, and a few thousand votes from Gainsborough into Wragby. 

However the constituency loses Chapel St Leonards, and Willoughby with Sloothby, to Boston and Skegness.
