A New Map!

The Boundary Commission have produced their final report giving the new constituencies on which the next General Election will be fought.

For the last few elections, in Tameside borough area the Westminster MP seats have been Ashton-Under-Lyne, Denton & Reddish, and Stalybridge & Hyde.

A lot changes locally and the borough will now cover the revised seats of Ashton-Under-Lyne, Gorton & Denton, and Stalybridge & Hyde.

Broadly the changes from the old constituencies are:

The new Ashton seat takes in most of the old one plus a chunk of Denton & Reddish.

The new Gorton & Denton seat, as you might guess, puts together about half the old Denton seat, a big lump of Manchester Gorton, and even some of Manchester Withington – where the Lib Dems held the MP seat 2005 – 2015.

And the new Stalybridge & Hyde covers the same area as the old one.

The General Election has to be held no later than January 2025.
