The Commission conducted a number of Administrative Area Reviews between 1973 and 1995 on the Region and District local authorities which existed at that time.
Detailed verbal descriptions and maps of each boundary change are contained in the reports and Statutory Instruments recorded on our archived website:
Each Statutory Instrument generally implements our recommendations. In a small number of cases, the Statutory Instrument implements the recommendations with modifications - these cases are indicated in the Statutory Instrument column. 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 consequential changes to the corresponding District Wards and Electoral Divisions for the local authorities.
