PLANS to redraw the Bury's constituency boundaries for Westminster elections have been revealed.

Under Boundary Commission proposals, Bury South, held by Christian Wakeford, would lose Radcliffe North ward.

And it would gain Kersal and Broughton Park from the City of Salford, as it has links with Sedgley Park in Bury.

Bury North, currently held by James Daly, would gain Radcliffe North, as it has an electorate under the desirable range.

The number of constituencies in England would rise from 533 to 543 under the commision's plans.

The rules also require that every constituency across the UK – apart from five exceptions – must have an electorate between 69,724 and 77,062 people.

According to the commission, Kersal and Broughton Park appears to have better physical links with the Sedgley area of Bury than the City of Salford itself.

Representatives of Mr Daly and Mr Wakeford have been contacted for comment on the new plans.

A Boundary Commission of England spokesman said: “We are consulting on our initial proposals for an eight-week period, from June 8 to August 2.

“We encourage everyone to use this opportunity to help us shape the new constituencies – the more responses we receive, the more informed our decisions will be.”
