Parliament accepted the Boundary Commission's Fifth Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies which slightly altered this constituency for the 2010 general election - the seat's southernmost part was transferred to East Hampshire while it gained some wards from Basingstoke and Hart wards from Aldershot - since which it has electoral wards:
- Calleva; Pamber; Sherborne St John; Upton Grey and the Candovers in the Borough of Basingstoke and Deane
- Church Crookham East; Church Crookham West; Crondall; Eversley; Fleet: Central, Courtmoor, North, Pondtail, West; Hartley Wintney; Hook; Long Sutton; Odiham; Yateley East: North and West in the Hart District.
The seat includes significant software, hardware and military sectors and a significant proportion of Basingstoke, Bracknell and City of London commuters, particularly the latter towards Hook railway station on the South West Main Line; the average income level is higher than the national average. This area also has low unemployment and a high proportion of semi-detached and detached properties.
