Constituency profile

This is a prosperous, middle-class corner of the Home Counties, incorporating the market town of Dorking, the surrounding Surrey Hills area of outstanding natural beauty and wealthy commuter villages.

The area has one of the highest employment rates in the country with a larger than average number of residents working in professional services.The bucolic area is also home to one of the country's largest real estate sectors and a considerable amount of mixed farming.

Founded in its present form in 1983, the area has returned Conservative MPs since the Second World War. The seat provided Kenneth Baker a platform to make his way up the ministerial ladder and become Home Secretary in 1990. He became Lord Baker in 1997 and the new candidate Sir Paul Beresford, a New Zealand born dentist, has held the seat ever since - getting 57.5% of votes in 2010, to the Lib Dems' 28.7% and Labour's 7%.
