Sheffield Heeley is a Parliamentary constituency covering south central Sheffield. This seat was created in 1950, largely replacing the former Sheffield Ecclesall constituency, its boundaries being significantly altered in 1955 with the abolition of Sheffield Neepsend. Originally held by the Conservative Party, it changed hands three times between 1966 and 1974, since when it has become a safe Labour seat, with the Liberal Democrats now in a distant second place. It has been represented by Meg Munn since 2001.

Boundaries

Sheffield Heeley constituency is centred on the district of Heeley. It includes the wards of Arbourthorne, Beauchief and Greenhill, Gleadless Valley, Graves Park, and most of Richmond. It neighbours the constituencies of North East Derbyshire, Sheffield Central, Sheffield Attercliffe, Sheffield Hallam and Sheffield Hillsborough.
