Hampstead & Kilburn is the parliamentary constituency covering our community: from Belsize Park to Queen's Park and from Kilburn High Road to Hampstead High Street.
Our constituency takes in ten wards, straddling the London Boroughs of Camden and Brent: Hampstead Town, Belsize, Frognal & Fitzjohns, Fortune Green, West Hampstead, Swiss Cottage, and Kilburn in Camden, and Brondesbury Park, Queens Park, and Kilburn in Brent. You can find out more about our activity in your ward on the sidebar to the right or by clicking on the map below.
It contains most of the pre-2010 Hampstead & Highgate constituency and one third of the old Brent East seat. About 130,000 people live in the constituency, making it one of the most populous - as well as one of the most varied - in the country.
About 75,000 - including all British, Irish, and Commonwealth citizens - are able to vote to elect their Member of Parliament. In addition, all citizens of the European Union can vote in local elections, London-wide elections, and European elections.
Hampstead & Kilburn is an ultra-marginal constituency between the Conservatives and Labour. At the 2010 general election, the local Conservative candidate missed out by just 42 votes, making the constituency the most marginal in the country (excluding a special case in Northern Ireland!). Despite being written off, in 2015, we lost by just 1,138, winning over 42% of the vote.
The Conservatives are the largest party in local government in our community, with 15 of the 30 councillors across the Camden and Brent wards that make up Hampstead & Kilburn. The Conservatives are the only opposition group in both Camden and Brent - both of which are sadly run by Labour - and we take our responsibility to hold the administrations to account seriously.
