CAMDEN could soon be represented by three MPs if changes proposed by the Boundary Commission go-ahead.

Under a reworking of the political map, the borough would be part of three new constituencies: Camden Town and St John’s Wood, Kentish Town and Bloomsbury, and West Hampstead and Kilburn.

It would mean the current voting zones – and historic names – of Holborn and St Pancras and Hampstead and Kilburn will be lost.

The new constituencies would include the following wards:

CAMDEN TOWN AND ST JOHN’S WOOD
Belsize, Camden Town, Gospel Oak, Hampstead Town, Haverstock, Primrose Hill, Abbey Road, Church Street, Little Venice, Maida Vale, Regent’s Park [Westminster]

KENTISH TOWN AND BLOOMSBURY
Bloomsbury, Camden Square (Cantelowes), Highgate, Holborn and Covent Garden, Kentish Town, King’s Cross, Regent’s Park [Camden], St Pancras & Somers Town, Tufnell Park

WEST HAMPSTEAD AND KILBURN
Brondesbury, Harlesden & Kensal Green, Kilburn [Brent], Kilburn [Camden], Queen’s Park, Fortune Green, Frognal, South Hampstead, West Hampstead
