Bognor Regis and Littlehampton is a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The current MP is Nick Gibb of the Conservative Party, elected at the 1997 general election.
Following their review of parliamentary boundaries in West Sussex, the Boundary Commission for England has made alterations to all existing constituencies to deal with population changes. The modified Bognor Regis and Littlehampton constituency is created with the following electoral wards:
- Aldwick East, Aldwick West, Beach, Bersted, Brookfield, Felpham East, Felpham West, Ham, Hotham, Marine, Middleton-on-Sea, Orchard, Pagham and Rose Green, Pevensey, River, Wick with Toddington, and Yapton from the District of Arun.
Immediately prior to this seat's creation in 1997, the two eponymous towns were part of the Arundel constituency. Prior to 1974, Bognor Regis was part of the Chichester constituency, while Littlehampton was part of the Arundel and Shoreham constituency.
