Parts of Lichfield could be moved into the Tamworth constituency if plans to change boundaries get the go-ahead.
The proposals have made headlines after it was revealed that the likes of George Osborne and Jeremy Corbyn could see their seats in the House of Commons disappear completely.
But some local residents would also see a change with Streethay and Whittington both switched into the neighbouring Tamworth constituency, currently represented by Christopher Pincher MP.
Meanwhile, the Lichfield seat held by Michael Fabricant MP would expand to cover Little Haywood, Great Haywood and Colwich.
A spokesperson said: “We propose to extend the existing Tamworth constituency to include the
whole of the divided Lichfield district ward of Whittington & Streethay within the Tamworth constituency.
“We noted that this change resulted in the electorate of the existing Lichfield constituency falling below 5% of the electoral quota, even after including the whole of the Lichfield
district ward of Hammerwich with Wall in the Lichfield constituency. We therefore propose to include the Stafford borough ward of Haywood & Hixon in the Lichfield constituency.”
The overall picture would see the West Midlands region represented by 53 MPs – six less than at present.
The current boundaries were drawn up after a previous review in 2000.
“Achieving a more even distribution of electors in every constituency across England, together with the reduction in the total number of constituencies, means that a significant amount of change to the existing map of constituencies is inevitable,” a spokesperson for the Boundary Commission for England added.
A public consultation has now been launched which will close on December 5. For more details visit the Boundary Commission website.
