The Parliamentary Constituency of Broadland was created by the Boundary Commission in 2010 as the successor seat to Mid Norfolk, which was relocated. It comprises the majority of what was Mid Norfolk, together with parts of what were North Norfolk and Norwich North. It takes its name from the local government district of Broadland although the constituency boundary does not match that of the district council nor is it coterminous with the Norfolk Broads (waterways and surrounding protected land).
The Parliamentary Constituency of Broadland is made up of the Broadland District Council wards of Acle, Aylsham, Blofield with South Walsham, Brundall, Burlingham, Buxton, Coltishall, Drayton North, Drayton South, Eynesford, Great Witchingham, Hevingham, Horsford and Felthorpe, Marshes, Plumstead, Reepham, Spixworth with St Faiths, Taverham North, Taverham South, and Wroxham, plus the North Norfolk District Council wards of Astley, Lancaster North, Lancaster South, The Raynhams, Walsingham, and Wensum.
We are a very large rural constituency stretching from near Great Yarmouth in the east almost to Wells-next-the Sea in the north west.
This site is intended for the members of Broadland Constituency Labour Party (CLP). The intention is to inform and, to a lesser extent, entertain! The articles that appear here are not necessarily the views of the Labour Party, of the Constituency, or of the officers of the CLP and are intended to stimulate debate on current issues. The site also gives information on events in which members may wish to participate along with some details of our meetings and the business transacted at those meetings. We carry what information we can about Labour Party conferences, local rallies and demonstrations. We also publish information about elections when the ae notified and happening!
We welcome contributions from members or other political activists. Should you wish to write an article for publication please send it along with any images to the Secretary. Please also give a written undertaking that you own the copyright of any image or content and that you are content for it to be published on this site. We will of necessity have to check that any potential publication is appropriate as, amongst other things, all information on the website is accessible by the public.
Similarly, members should be able to comment on any article on the site, although I can’t at present figure out why a comment option is not always shown (I am trying to fix that). Such comments will need to be authorised before appearing to try to avoid any material that would be inappropriate.
Please bear in mind we are all volunteers giving our time freely to support the Labour Party and to try to get a democratic socialist Labour government elected. We do our best in the time we have and apologise in advance for any shortcomings. If you would like to assist in our endeavours contact the secretary or any member of the executive committee.
