Harwich & North Essex

The constituency is made up of small towns and villages wrapped round Colchester from Marks Tey to Harwich (the largest town) plus Mersea Island, Peldon and Dedham. Most of it is in the Tendring District Council area, but it includes parts of Colchester Borough which are looked after by the Colchester local party.


With the recent surge in membership, members are now fairly evenly distributed round the constituency but with rather larger numbers in Brightlingsea and the Manningtree area, where there are branches.


We currently have two councillors within this constituency, Gary Scott and Ann Wiggins on Tendring District Council representing Alresford & Elmstead (returned in 2019).

The parliamentary spokesperson is Mike Beckett.
