Boundary of North East Hampshire in Hampshire.
Location of Hampshire within England.
|Electorate||72,548 (December 2010)|
|Major settlements||Fleet, Church Crookham, Hook and Yateley|
|Member of parliament||Ranil Jayawardena (Conservative)|

|Created from||East Hampshire, Aldershot|
|European Parliament constituency||South East England|
The constituency was created in 1997 from parts of the seats of Aldershot and East Hampshire since which it has only seen one member serving it in Westminster. In terms of majority size, it is the safest Conservative seat in the UK.
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.
