Chesham & Amersham: Constituency analysis

Andy Holmes

BBC Three Counties Radio political reporter

Cheryl Gillan is the longest serving female Conservative MP, having been MP for Chesham and Amersham since 1992.

Cheryl Gillan
Conservative Party

In that election she won with a majority of more than 22,000 in a seat that has been Tory since its creation in 1974, and has consistently held a decent majority ever since, culminating in a 23,920 lead in 2015.

In 2017, she's been facing opposition from Labour, the Lib Dems, the Greens and UKIP, with the UKIP candidate being former Tory councillor David Meacock, who defected to the party in 2013

UKIP finished second in 2015, whilst Meacock was third in the nearby Wycombe constituency.
