The plans will see a reduction in London MPs from 73 to 68 and Brent spread across four constituencies: Kenton, Queen’s Park and Regent’s Park, Wembley and Harrow-on-the-Hill and Willesden.

The proposals do not affect council wards or councillors.

Carolyn Downs, chief executive of Brent Council, said: “I would encourage our residents in Brent to have a look at these proposals and feedback to the consultation if they have any comments.

“They are available on the Boundary Commission’s website and there is a hard copy of the proposals here at the Civic Centre should anyone want to have a look.”

She added: “The proposals will also be discussed at the upcoming Brent Connects meetings and there will be five public hearings across London on the proposals which last two days.”
