Boundaries

The Wyre Forest constituency as it was drawn for the 1997 election was almost coterminous with Wyre Forest, with around 2,000 electors from the district in the neighbouring Leominster constituency. Following its review of parliamentary constituencies in advance of the 2010 election, the Boundary Commission has recommended the portions of the district currently in Leominster move in to this seat, making the constituency and district wholly coterminous.

These changes have been brought about in part by the consideration of Worcestershire and Herefordshire separately for the drawing of parliamentary constituency boundaries.
