Description

Bournemouth West is a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the UK Parliament since 2010 by Conor Burns, a Conservative.

Boundaries

1950–1974: The County Borough of Bournemouth wards of Central, East Cliff, Kinson, Moordown North, Moordown South, Redhill Park, Westbourne, West Cliff, and Winton. 1974–1983: The County Borough of Bournemouth wards of Central, East Cliff, Kinson North, Kinson South, Redhill Park, Westbourne, West Cliff, and Winton. 1983–1997: The Borough of Bournemouth wards of Ensbury Park, Kinson, Redhill Park, Talbot Woods, Wallisdown, Westbourne, West Cliff, and Winton, and the Borough of Poole wards of Alderney, Bourne Valley, and Canford Magna. 1997–2010: The Borough of Bournemouth wards of Central, East Cliff, Ensbury Park, Kinson, Redhill Park, Talbot Woods, Wallisdown, Westbourne, West Cliff, and Winton. 2010–present: The Borough of Bournemouth wards of Central, Kinson North, Kinson South, Redhill and Northbourne, Talbot and Branksome Woods, Wallisdown and Winton West, Westbourne and West Cliff, and Winton East, and the Borough of Poole wards of Alderney and Branksome East. The constituency includes the western portion of Bournemouth, from the Kinson, Winton, and Talbot Woods areas down towards the town centre and the West Cliff. Following a boundary change for the 2010 general election, the constituency gained the Branksome area from Poole whilst losing East Cliff to the neighbouring Bournemouth East constituency. The constituency contains Labour's best ward in Bournemouth in the district of Kinson, but the seat has elected Conservatives at every election since its creation in 1950 and is considered safe for them. With the exception of the period 1983-1997 (when it was in Bournemouth East), Bournemouth town centre has been in this constituency since its creation in 1950.
