Description BBC Profile:
Dr Nick Palmer won this seat for Labour from the Conservatives in 1997, and has held it since. At the 2005 election his majority was more than halved to 2,296.

At the election, the changes to Broxtowe's boundaries are minimal. To find out what might have happened had this boundary change been in force at the last election, see a notional - or estimated - result below.

Covering the western fringes of the west and northwest of Nottingham, Broxtowe has changed significantly politically and socially since the early 1990s.

A predominantly middle-class constituency containing a mix of open countryside and more built-up suburbs, Broxtowe largely escaped the economic turmoil of the 1980s and early 90s that beset neighbouring constituencies more reliant on mining and manufacturing.

Boots, based in the east of the constituency, remains the major employer in the area. A large number of Eastern European workers have been employed at the plant, swelling the population of nearby Beeston. That trend appears to have peaked, however, and many have now returned home.

The service industry has now taken over manufacturing as the largest source of employment, with a number of call-centres opening throughout the area.
