This constituency (and its counterpart, Milton Keynes South), came into being when the two Milton Keynes constituencies (Milton Keynes North East and Milton Keynes South West) were reconfigured following the Boundary Commission's Fifth Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies with the aim of equalising the electorate as between the constituencies in the light of population growth that had occurred mainly in the Milton Keynes Urban Area. This constituency is the more rural of the two.
The constituency takes up the majority of the area of the Borough of Milton Keynes and is one of the borough's two constituencies. Milton Keynes North has a larger rural area, most of its communities have larger green buffers; the other, Milton Keynes South, covers a smaller area and is more urban.
This seat has electoral wards:
- Campbell Park
- Hanslope Park
- Linford North
- Linford South
- Newport Pagnell North
- Newport Pagnell South
