This page contains links to the reports and resulting Statutory Instruments from Administrative Area Reviews which we carried out between 1995 and 2006 on the unitary local authorities which were established by the Local Government etc (Scotland) Act 1994.
In each case, the Statutory Instrument implements our recommendations as they were made. These reviews were conducted in order to consider the boundary of local authority areas. Where a review recommended an amendment to the boundary, it also recommended corresponding changes to the corresponding electoral wards for the local authorities.
We submitted our Reports to Ministers in November 2000. Our recommendations for these areas came into force on 1 June 2002.
