Enabling ‘Digital Democracy’ – Final recommendations for new parliamentary boundaries have been laid in Parliament

After three years of consultation, the electoral boundary review has moved into its final stage and awaits Parliamentary appraisal. Informed Solutions, utilising its Queen’s Award-winning Digital Platform, InformedCONSULT©, has transformed public engagement in this democratic process.

The Government-initiated “2018 Review”, which envisages changes to parliamentary constituencies and a reduction from 650 to 600 MPs in the House of Commons, was introduced in 2016. After three years of painstaking consultation and consideration, this vital democratic process has now moved into its final stage and awaits Parliamentary appraisal. 

Throughout this period, the work of the Boundary Commissions for England, Scotland, and Wales has been supported by Informed Solutions, utilising its ground-breaking and Queen’s Award-winning Digital Platform, InformedCONSULT©.

Using InformedCONSULT, the digital consultation service has transformed how public opinion is captured and has increased engagement in the democratic process. In England alone, the service received over 200,000 visits on the first day of its launch, with over 40,000 comments submitted in total and some 90% of all submissions being delivered digitally.

The service has since been awarded “Best Use of a Digital Solution” in partnership with Boundary Commission for England at the Cabinet Office supported national Paperless Awards.  Sam Hartley, Secretary of the Boundary Commission for England, said:

“With our partner Informed Solutions, we've succeeded in turning what was a heavily paper-based project into an online one, making it easier than ever before for citizens to contribute to the process of setting parliamentary boundaries.”
