Banks Peninsula was a New Zealand parliamentary electorate from 1996 to 2008.

It was held by Ruth Dyson MP[1] from 1999 to 2008.

Population centres

The 1996 election was notable for the significant change of electorate boundaries, based on the provisions of the Electoral Act 1993.[2] Because of the introduction of the mixed-member proportional (MMP) electoral system, the number of electorates had to be reduced, leading to significant changes. More than half of the electorates contested in 1996 were newly constituted, and most of the remainder had seen significant boundary changes. In total, 73 electorates were abolished, 29 electorates were newly created (including Banks Peninsula), and 10 electorates were recreated, giving a net loss of 34 electorates.

The electorate included the following population centres:

History

In boundary changes for the 2008 general election, the electorate lost its rural population centres to newly formed Selwyn, becoming a solely urban electorate and was renamed Port Hills. The change saw Port Hills become a safer Labour seat. Up to 1996, the first MMP election, Banks Peninsula was part of the now defunct Lyttelton electorate.
