Forest Gate North, Forest Gate South, Stratford and New Town would join five Waltham Forest wards to become Leyton and Stratford, while Beckton and Royal Docks would join nine Barking and Dagenham wards to become Barking and Beckton.
A consultation on the proposals runs until December 11. Visit bce2018.org.uk for more and to have your say.
