Hallam constituency extends from Stannington in the north to Dore in the south and includes small parts of the city centre in the east. It includes the wards of Crookes, Dore and Totley, Ecclesall, Fulwood and Stannington.
The large majority of Hallam is rural, spreading in the west in to the Peak District National Park. It also contains some of the least deprived wards in the country, has low unemployment and a high rate of owner occupancy. Since the recent boundary changes, neither of Sheffield's universities have a campus in the constituency, but it still includes areas where many students live.
Hallam borders onto the constituencies of High Peak, North East Derbyshire, Sheffield Central, Sheffield Heeley and Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough.
The Boundary Commission's final recommendations for boundary reform (published 14 September 2005) proposed that Hallam lose Broomhill ward to Sheffield Central and gain Stannington from Sheffield Hillsborough, which is to be abolished. These changes came into force for the 2010 general election
The constituency should not be confused with the former Hallamshire constituency.

Famous quotes containing the word boundaries:
“Not too many years ago, a childs experience was limited by how far he or she could ride a bicycle or by the physical boundaries that parents set. Today ... the real boundaries of a childs life are set more by the number of available cable channels and videotapes, by the simulated reality of videogames, by the number of megabytes of memory in the home computer. Now kids can go anywhere, as long as they stay inside the electronic bubble.”
—Richard Louv (20th century)
“It is the story-tellers task to elicit sympathy and a measure of understanding for those who lie outside the boundaries of State approval.”
—Graham Greene (19041991)
“We must be generously willing to leave for a time the narrow boundaries in which our individual lives are passed ... In this fresh, breezy atmosphere ... we will be surprised to find that many of our familiar old conventional truths look very queer indeed in some of the sudden side lights thrown upon them.”
—Bertha Honore Potter Palmer (18491918)
