Sefton Central is to 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. The seat has been created during the Boundary Commission for England's review of constituencies.


The constituency replaces that of Crosby along with part of Knowsley North and Sefton East, which will both be abolished. The new constituency will cover Crosby, Formby and Maghull in the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton. The electoral wards in the new constituency as follows:

* Blundellsands
* Harington
* Manor
* Molyneux
* Park
* Ravenmeols
* Sudell

Election results

This seat will be fought for the first time at the next United Kingdom general election, which must be held by June 2010.

Eleven of the constituency's twenty-one councillors are Conservatives, followed by the Liberal Democrats who have ten. Share of the vote based on the 2008 local election in these seven wards is: Conservative 42.3% Liberal Democrat 34.2% Labour 18.1%. However local election results do not always have a direct bearing on general election results.

Analysis by Colin Rallings and Michael Thrasher indicates that had the Sefton Central constituency existed in 2005, the result would have been: Labour 45.6%, Conservative 33.6%, LibDem 19.2%, a Labour majority of 4,950.
