Everything Derby

In boundary changes, Derbyshire, East Midlands on October 29, 2011 by dadge

Here’s the Commission’s and the three main parties’ proposals for Derby, plus the current and pre-2010 arrangements

I’m still not sure what my final counterproposal for Derby will be. Although the Labour and Tory politicians want a north-south split because that’s what they’re used to, it looks to me from the modern geography of the city that an east-west split would be better. Therefore if I had to choose from just the four plans shown here, I’d go for the Commission’s. And I bet you never thought you’d hear me say that!

Boundary Commission
Derby West 73,846
Derby East 80,417
Derby South & Swadlincote 79,717

Conservative Party
Derby North 73,941
Derby South 80,322
South Derbyshire 79,717

Labour Party

Derby South 77,324
Derby West & Belper 80,250

Liberal Democrats
Derby West 73,661
Derby East 77,324
