New wards of the Croydon North Constituency (orange) within the London Borough of Croydon (yellow)
Croydon North is a parliamentary constituency represented in the House of Commonsmarker of the Parliament of the United Kingdommarker, covering the north west of the London Borough of Croydonmarker. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election. The current Member of Parliament is Malcolm Wicks of the Labour Party, who has one of the largest Labour majorities in Londonmarker, despite being the first ever Labour MP for the area.

The seat was created at the 1997 general election from the former Croydon North Westmarker and part of the former Croydon North East constituencies. There had previously been a Croydon North constituency from 1918 until 1955.

Boundaries

This electorate includes Thornton Heathmarker, Norburymarker, West Croydonmarker, Selhurstmarker and parts of Southmarker and Upper Norwoodmarker.

Croydon's three constituencies are contiguous with the boundaries of the London Borough of Croydon. The constituency borders the seats of Carshalton and Wallingtonmarker, Mitcham and Mordenmarker, Streathammarker, Dulwich and West Norwoodmarker and Beckenhammarker, as well as Croydon Central and Croydon Southmarker.

Boundary review

Following their review of parliamentary representation in South Londonmarker, the Boundary Commission have made minor changes to the existing Croydon constituencies. In the modified North division, the electoral wards used in the formation are:
  • Bensham Manor, Broad Green, Norbury, Selhurst, South Norwood, Thornton Heathmarker, Upper Norwood, and West Thornton.


If the boundary changes had been in existence at the 2005 general election, it would have had the largest electorate after Isle of Wightmarker in England at 86,178. In the boundary changes, it receives over 2,500 electors from Croydon Centralmarker.
