Boundaries

The constituency is in the county of Hampshire, partly in both the districts of Basingstoke and Deane and the Test Valley, but focussed around the town of Andover. Smaller towns in the constituency include Tadley and Whitchurch.

Near Basingstoke, the boundaries are to be changed to more accurately reflect the rural areas around the Basingstoke constituency, and transfer the newer estates into Basingstoke constituency.
