Parliament accepted the Boundary Commission's Fifth Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies proposing to create this constituency for the 2010 general election which increased the number of seats in the county from 11 to 12. It replaced the southern part of the former Teignbridge seat, including the town of Newton Abbot itself, as well as Dawlish and Teignmouth. Nominally the 2010 results was a gain of the seat (LD-Conservative) on a swing of 5.8%. Teignbridge's other successor saw a very similar 6% swing with a much larger margin for the same winning party in Central Devon in the 2010 election.
