Plans to break up Romsey parliamentary seat scrapped
10:02am Friday 19th October 2012 in Romsey
Plans to dismantle the Romsey and Southampton North parliamentary constituency have been abandoned in the latest proposals published by the Boundary Commission this week.
After recommending last year that the constituency be broken up and shared out amongst its neighbours, the commission now says it should remain largely the same, apart from the loss of the Blackwater ward to New Forest East and parts of Swaythling to Southampton Test.
Romsey and Southampton North constituency would see the addition of Hiltingbury and Chandler’s Ford, currently part of the Eastleigh seat.
