Parts of Andover could move to neighbouring parliamentary constituencies if proposed changes to the boundaries come into effect.

The Boundary Commission has published its latest review of constituency boundaries in the UK, which would likely take effect before the next general election.

If approved, it could see Charlton, Thruxton, Weyhill and Goodworth Clatford, among other villages, move from Andover's North West Hampshire constituency into neighbouring Romsey and Southampton North.

It will also affect the likes of Monxton, Abbotts Ann, Shipton Bellinger and Appleshaw.

Currently, all these villages are represented by Kit Malthouse, but if re-elected, would get a new MP in the form of Caroline Nokes.

The public is now able to give their feedback on the proposals during the eight-week consultation which runs to August 2.

Tim Bowden, secretary to the Boundary Commission for England, said: “Today’s proposals mark the first time people get to see what the new map of Parliamentary constituencies might look like.

"But they are just the Commission’s initial thoughts. Help us draw the line to make the number of electors in each Parliamentary constituency more equal.

"Each constituency we recommend is required by law to contain between 69,724 and 77,062 electors, meaning there will be significant change to current boundaries.

"We want to hear the views of the public to ensure that we get the new boundaries for Parliamentary constituencies right.”

The number of MPs will be staying at 650, despite previous plans to reduce that by 50, but the boundaries will be shifted to ensure they are more equal in size.

The last time constituency boundaries were changed in England was in 2010.

Under the plans, Tidworth and Ludgershall would be moved from the Devizes constituency, currently represented by Danny Kruger, to the renamed East Wiltshire constituency, which would also encompass Amesbury.

Devizes itself would merge with Melksham.

Currently, the three constituencies in the Andover area are served by Conservative MPs: Kit Malthouse in North West Hampshire, Caroline Nokes in Romsey and Southampton North and Danny Kruger in Devizes.

Elsewhere in North Hampshire, Old Basing, Little Basing, Mapledurwell and the villages around the south and west of Newnham would leave Basingstoke and join the North East Hampshire constituency.

Additionally, Wooton St Lawrence, Oakley, North Waltham and Steventon would move from North West Hampshire to Basingstoke.

Whilst Popley would be in the Basingstoke constituency, Rooksdown and the Merton Rise estate would fall under North West Hampshire.

Meanwhile, the village of Dummer would move from North West to North East Hampshire, whilst Sherborne St John, Monk Sherborne and Pamber Heath will move in the opposite direction.
