Constituency profile

Surrounding Chesterfield on three sides is the seat of Derbyshire North East. Situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park, it is a mixture of rural and town areas, bordering Sheffield at its northern edge.

It is a former coalmining constituency made up old colliery towns and villages like Clay Cross, Staveley and Killamarsh. New employment has since arrived in the shape of industrial estates, and regeneration areas, with many workers commuting to Sheffield and Chesterfield. Seven out of 10 of the population owns their own home; two in 10 lives in social housing, according to ONS 2011 Census figures for England and Wales.

A mostly white population, one in four has no qualifications; one in five have a degree. A Labour stronghold since 1935, Natascha Engel held the seat in 2010 for Labour with 38.2%; Conservatives got 33%, Liberal Democrats, 23.3% and UKIP 5.6%.
