Ged Mirfin started this petition to The boundary commission and

You may not have seen or heard but the Boundary Commission has published its initial proposals for the 2023 review of parliamentary constituency boundaries.

There are a number of changes proposed for the Lancashire area. An interactive map of the proposals for the North West is available here: https://www.bcereviews.org.uk/node/6487
The consultation period lasts until 2 August, and the website explains how to respond.

Unfortunately the mad map makers in London who appear totally disconnected from reality have proposed including iconic parts of the Ribble Valley: Whalley and Painter Wood; East Whalley Read and Simonstone and Langho and Billington in an extended Hyndburn Parliamentary Constituency.

Can I encourage residents of the Ribble Valley to make their feelings known as soon as possible to the Boundary Commission by signing this petition and saying no this ludicrous proposal which will surgically remove iconic parts of the Ribble Valley which are part of the beating heart of the Ribble Valley and place them into another constituency along with Accrington which shares little of the identity of the Ribble Valley and certainly does not have the same concerns.
