Constituency profile

With low crime, high employment, good access to London, the coast and the South Downs, Mid Sussex tends to do well in quality of life surveys. Dominated by three towns, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill, this South East England constituency also contains pretty villages like Lindfield, Cuckfield and Warninglid.

Much of its workforce commutes to London, Brighton, Crawley and Gatwick but it has a healthy economy of its own. The business parks around Burgess Hill are home to about 300 businesses, including high-tech telecommunications and pharmaceuticals. Haywards Heath is a centre for banking and insurance while East Grinstead has light industry, as well as being home to Scientology's UK HQ. According to the 2011 Census, the constituency has a largely white population, lots of home owners, a highly qualified workforce and low unemployment.

Conservative Nicholas Soames won here in 2010 with a majority of 7,402 votes - followed by the Lib Dems.
