Sheffield Central

Profile

Sheffield Central was created in 1983 and at present covers parts of a number of council wards, including Broomhill & Sharrow Vale, City, Manor Castle, Nether Edge & Sharrow, and Walkley. Central is the largest student constituency in the country - 30% of residents also study at Sheffield or Hallam. It has been a Labour seat since it was re-created for the 1983 General Election, and since 2010 has been represented by Paul Blomfield, a former general manager of our Students' Union. In 2015, he increased his majority by nearly 39%, winning 24,308 votes. The Green Party came second with 6,999 - the third-best result nationwide for the party in the election. They are hoping to go one better this year and gain their first Parliamentary seat in the North.
