Boundaries and boundary changesEdit
1983-1997: The Borough of Broxbourne, the District of East Hertfordshire wards of Great Amwell, Little Amwell, and Stanstead, and the District of Welwyn Hatfield ward of Northaw.
Formed as a Borough Constituency primarily from parts of the abolished County Constituency of East Hertfordshire, mainly consisting of the former Urban Districts of Cheshunt and Hoddesdon which had been combined to form the District of Broxbourne under the local government reorganisation of 1974 and also including Stanstead Abbotts and Great Amwell to the north and Northaw (transferred from Welwyn Hatfield) to the west.
The three District of East Hertfordshire wards were transferred to Hertford and Stortford.
Changes proposed for 2022Edit
The Boundary Commission for England submitted their final proposals in respect of the Sixth Periodic Review of Westminster Constituencies (the 2018 review) in September 2018. If these proposals are approved by Parliament they will reduce the total number of MPs from 650 to 600 and come into effect at the next UK general election which is due to take place in May 2022 under the terms of the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011.
In order to bring the constituency within the required electoral range, the Commission have recommended that the District of East Hertfordshire ward of Great Amwell be transferred back from Hertford and Stortford.
