RADICAL plans could change the county’s political boundaries, cutting the number of elected seats.

The Boundary Commission has released proposals to alter the size and shape of constituencies across the country to reduce the number of MPs employed.

In Derbyshire this would mean a cut from 11 constituencies to ten and remodelling to remaining areas.

The plans could see Amber Valley as a constituency disappear, with its wards being redistributed among other areas.

Amber Valley Tory MP Nigel Mills said: “It was not a total shock but I’ve worked hard to win this seat so it’s disappointing to see it altered.”
