The Whitton community is currently spread over two local council wards – Whitton and Heathfield.

The Heathfield ward will remain in Twickenham whilst Whitton is moved to the Brentford and Isleworth constituency at the next general election.

Munira Wilson who lives in Heathfield opposed the boundary changes by submitting a formal application on the initial consultation.

“I have considered myself a proud Whitton local since I moved to the area in 2011. I am very sad to see that the Conservatives’ cynical redrawing of the electoral map will tear our town in two, putting a boundary through the heart of our community.

“Local Liberal Democrats strongly opposed these plans to displace Whitton from the Twickenham constituency and, in particular, to isolate the Dene Estate next to the Stoop from its closest neighbours on the south side of the A316.

“I know from talking to many Whitton residents they are furious about this move. I thank them for their support in challenging the Boundary Commission’s proposals through the consultation phase.

“I will continue to be Whitton’s woman in Westminster, representing all of Whitton’s residents in Parliament until the next election on issues from Heathrow noise and SWR services at the station, to the cost-of-living crisis and NHS care.”
