Broadland will be a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It will elect one Member of Parliament (MP)] by the first past the post system of election.

Following its review into parliamentary representation in Norfolk, the Boundary Commission for England has created the Broadland constituency, which is the successor seat to Mid Norfolk. The name is taken from the local government area Broadland though its boundary does not match that of the district council nor is it contiguous with the area known as the Norfolk Broads.

Boundaries

The new Broadland seat takes its name from the local government district, from which 20 electoral wards are taken. Six wards from North Norfolk council are also used in the creation of this seat.
