The Boundary Commission for England published its revised proposals for the Tottenham parliamentary constituency earlier today.
The revised proposals (if you look on the map on this page and type either your postcode or zoom in) is mainly consisting of the removal of the Stroud Green ward from the initial proposals. However, the Woodside ward which is currently in the neighbouring Hornsey and Wood Green constituency, was added. The rest of the constituency remains unchanged.
Earlier fears that the constituency would be broken up were unfounded. In the report, local MP David Lammy commented:
“With complex problems, including the highest level of temporary accomodation in London, a transient population, failed estates, some of the highest unemployment levels in London, a high level of crime, the lack of a town centre focus, and a breakdown in the relationships between the community and the police… it is vitally important that the integrity of Tottenham as a constituency is maintained.”

The changes to the new boundaries, if approved, will take into effect at the next general election.
