The York Outer Constituency was created as a result of the last boundary commission changes, with Julian becoming the first York Outer MP in May 2010. The constituency takes the form of a doughnut ring surrounding the York Central Constituency and its outer boundary is the York City Council Boundary. It has been made up of parts of Selby, Rydale, Vale of York and The City of York Constituencies.
York Outer consists of the City’s suburbs, including many historic villages such as Fulford, Osbaldwick, Skelton and Bishopthorpe. The Constituency is also home to the University of York, a world class research centre situated next to the village of Heslington.
Other areas included in the constituency are Dunnington, Wheldrake, Elvington, Naburn, Acaster Malbis, Askham Bryan, Askham Richard, Poppleton, Copmanthorpe, Hessay, Rufforth, Knapton, Haxby, Wigginton, Strensall, Earswick, Stockton-on-the-Forest, Holtby, Murton, Heworth Without, Huntington, New Earswick, Dringhouses, and Woodthorpe,
Julian frequently meets with local residents from each and every part of York Outer. Indeed, he holds open surgeries in local supermarkets as well as open meetings in different village halls to ensure that he is accessible to all.
