Hutt South electorate boundaries used since the 2014 election

Hutt South is a parliamentary electorate in the lower Hutt Valley of New Zealand. It is held by Trevor Mallard of the Labour Party.

Population centres[edit]

The electorate is based on the southern part of the city of Lower Hutt. It was formed in 1996 from the old electorates of Pencarrow and Eastern Hutt. Hutt South consists of the southern suburbs of Lower Hutt, Petone, Wainuiomata, and Eastbourne.[1]

Following the 2014 boundary review, Hutt South lost Naenae and a small part of Epuni to Rimutaka, in exchange for the suburbs of Kelson and Belmont. It also gained the suburbs of Tirohanga, Harbour View, Normandale, Maungaraki and Korokoro from Ōhariu, meaning the entire Hutt Valley was now covered by just two electorates (Rimutaka and Hutt South).

Since 2014, the following suburbs of Lower Hutt fall within Hutt South.[2]

History[edit]

At the first MMP election in 1996, Hutt South replaced the earlier electorate of Pencarrow, which was then held by Trevor Mallard. Mallard has been returned at every general election since.[3]
