Littleport to move to Norfolk in new constituency plans

Littleport will move from North East Cambridgeshire to a new Thetford and Downham Market parliamentary constituency, if proposals from the Boundary Commission are given the green light by MPs.

Sutton and the Downham Villages will remain in North East Cambridgeshire constituency, together with Fenland.

Meanwhile South East Cambridgeshire is set to lose Fulbourn, Linton and Teversham to South Cambridgeshire constituency, and gain Earith from Huntingdonshire.

Littleport will remain in East Cambridgeshire for district and county council purposes.

This is the Boundary Commission’s final report.  It will now be laid before Parliament, and a draft Order will be made for Parliament to approve (or reject).  After the Order has been made, the next General Election will take place on the new boundaries.  Any parliamentary by-elections in the meantime will take place on existing boundaries.
