Boundary changes[edit]

From the United Kingdom general election, 2010 onwards, Derbyshire has been divided into 11 constituencies rather than the former 10. This involved the abolishment of West Derbyshire (UK Parliament constituency), the creation of Derbyshire Dales (UK Parliament constituency) and the re-introduction of Mid Derbyshire (UK Parliament constituency)
