List of Parliamentary constituencies in Cleveland
Cleveland was abolished in 1996 both as a county council and a non-metropolitan county, but the name Cleveland continues to be used unofficially in subsequent boundary reviews as presented by the Boundary Commission for England to describe the area covered by the former county for the purpose of the rules which strongly deter cross-council constituencies (spanning more than one local authority within its area). The area covers the unitary authorities of Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, and Stockton-on-Tees. The constituency boundaries used up to the 2005 United Kingdom general election were drawn up when it was a county. The area is divided into 6 Parliamentary constituencies – 5 Borough constituencies and 1 County constituency.

2010 boundary changes
Under the Fifth Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies, the Boundary Commission for England decided to retain Cleveland's constituencies for the 2010 election, making minor changes to realign constituency boundaries with the boundaries of current local government wards and to reduce the electoral disparity between Stockton North and Stockton South.
|Name||Boundaries 1997-2010||Boundaries 2010-present|
Proposed boundary changes
See 2023 Periodic Review of Westminster constituencies for further details.
Following the abandonment of the Sixth Periodic Review (the 2018 review), the Boundary Commission for England formally launched the 2023 Review on 5 January 2021 and published their initial proposals on 8 June 2021.
The Commission has proposed that the four unitary authorities which make up the former county of Cleveland be combined with the Borough of Darlington (previously considered with County Durham) to form a Tees Valley sub-division of the North East region. The proposals would involve Redcar being renamed Redcar and Eston, and Stockton South renamed Stockton West.  The following seats are proposed:
Containing electoral wards in Hartlepool
Containing electoral wards in Middlesbrough
Containing electoral wards in Redcar and Cleveland
- Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (part)
- Redcar and Eston (part)
Containing electoral wards in Stockton-on-Tees
Revised proposals will be published in late 2022 and the final report will be submitted in June 2023.
