Boundary changes have been proposed for Christchurch's Port Hills electorate, along with a name change to Banks Peninsula.
The electorate will gain 6500 people living in Banks Peninsula, who are now part of Selwyn, and lose 5700 from Bromley and Halswell, under plans released by the Representation Commission on Wednesday.
The changes, which include adjustments to Ilam, Wigram, Christchurch East and Rangitata, were designed to reduce the size of Selwyn, the fastest growing electorate in the country.
The commission is proposing to move 14,100 people from Selwyn into neighbouring electorates because the population is too high – 16.5 per cent above guidelines – and is projected to grow even further.
