Constituency profile

In a predominantly urban corner of south east Hertfordshire, is the seat of Broxbourne. The constituency includes: Waltham Cross, Cheshunt, Wormley, Hoddesdon and Rye Park. Its proximity to London makes it popular with business and commuters alike - the proposed high-frequency Crossrail 2 scheme is set to run from Cheshunt to Epsom in Surrey.

While the pharmaceutical company MSD is a major employer, Tesco's decision to move its headquarters from Cheshunt to Welwyn Garden City in 2016, will result in job losses.

At 12%, Broxbourne has the second highest proportion of people working in construction of all the constituencies in England and Wales, according to ONS 2011 Census figures. Almost three quarters of the population - 73.7% - are homeowners, with a third owning their property outright. In 2010, Charles Walker held the seat for the Conservatives with 58.8% of the votes; Labour got 17.6%, Liberal Democrats 13.4% and BNP 4.7%.
