North West London

In boundary changes, London on November 8, 2011 by dadge

This counter-proposal attempts to strike a balance between:

– producing constituencies with some resemblance to current seats

– having some respect for borough boundaries

– not splitting too many communities between seats

In my opinion, this isn’t possible without splitting a few wards, namely one each in Harrow, Brent and Ealing.

Feltham & Hampton 76,179
Brentford & Whitton 78,933

  1. You’ve tried to cross the Brent/Westminster border at Maida Vale, Shirland Road and Kilburn Lane, I see. This is a classic case of ‘It’s right next to it on the map’ syndrome. When the Boundary Commission proposed it in 2001 it went down like a lead balloon and had to be dropped. There is a potential north-south link in St John’s Wood and Primrose Hill but there is none here.

    PS Residents will tell you of the potential difficulties involved in encouraging any links between the Mozart Estate and South Kilburn.

    • Thanks, David. I remember the lack of support for crossing the border there but it’s not as if we’re asking the people to live together or like each other, just that they be represented in parliament by the same person. Everyone does their best, me included, to put areas together with shared interests but it can’t always be possible.
