Ilam electorate boundaries used since the 2008 election

Ilam is a New Zealand parliamentary electorate. Formed for the 1996 election, it has always been held by Gerry Brownlee of the National Party.

Population centres[edit]

Encompassing many of Chirstchurch's most affluent suburbs, Ilam is considered a safe National seat. The electorate includes the suburbs of Riccarton (north of Riccarton Road), Upper Riccarton, Fendalton, Burnside, Avonhead, Merivale, Bishopdale, Ilam, Russley and Bryndwr. Since 2008, the boundaries are Deans Avenue, the Avon River, Bealey Avenue, Papanui Road, Harewood Road, Russley Road, Ansonby Street, Cutts Road, Yaldhurst Road and Riccarton Road.[1] The 2013/14 redistribution did not alter the boundaries of the Ilam electorate.[2]

History[edit]

The Ilam electorate was formed for the 1996 election, mostly evolving from the Fendalton electorate.[1] Gerry Brownlee from the National Party was the first elected representative and has held the electorate ever since.[3][4] In the 2014 election, Brownlee was unsuccessfully challenged by Labour's James Dann.[5][6]
