Administrative area reviews 1973 to 1976

All review reports | 1973-76 | 1977-94 | 1995-2006 | 2007 onwards

This page contains links to the reports and resulting Statutory Instruments from Administrative Area Reviews which we carried out between 1973 and 1976 on the Region and District local authorities which existed at that time.

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.

Detailed verbal descriptions and maps of each boundary change are contained in the reports and Statutory Instruments listed below.

The reports are available in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. Details of how to handle PDF files, and in particular large PDF files such as those on this website, are available in the Technical section of our Frequently Asked Questions.
