It covers the north-eastern third of the London Borough of Barnet including High Barnet, Arkley, New Barnet, East Barnet, Totteridge, Whetstone, Friern Barnet and parts of Cockfosters, Southgate and Muswell Hill. Chipping Barnet is made up of seven electoral wards from the London Borough of Barnet:
- Brunswick Park, Coppetts, East Barnet, High Barnet, Oakleigh, Totteridge, Underhill
2007 Boundary review
Following their review of parliamentary representation, and as a consequence of changes to ward boundaries, the Boundary Commission for England recommended that parts of Underhill ward and Coppetts ward be transferred to Chipping Barnet from the constituencies of Hendon and Finchley and Golders Green respectively. It also recommended that a small part of Mill Hill ward be transferred from Chipping Barnet to Hendon.
