Constituency Information

Gedling, a Nottinghamshire constituency formed in 1983, is currently represented by Conservative Tom Randall since 2019.

Initially a Conservative stronghold, Labour took over in 1997 under Vernon Coaker, maintaining control until 2019. It comprises affluent, middle-income north-eastern Nottingham suburbs. Boundaries shifted in 2010, and further changes are proposed for the next election by 2025, incorporating rural areas from Sherwood. Historically, Gedling replaced Carlton, only selecting Conservatives until Labour’s 1997 landslide. Recent contests have marked Gedling as a marginal seat, with significant national and local shifts in voter support affecting outcomes. UKIP and other parties struggled in 2015, while turnout rates have fluctuated over the years.
