Dear Hendry, Angela,

The timeframe is since the creation of the local authorities into boundaries and their various transitions.

By data I mean records that contain the information relating to who first granted local authorities jurisdiction over the land

Yours sincerely,

Mr Frankham

Dear Mr Frankham

Our ref: 35690/18

The Commission does not hold records or information relating to 'who first granted local authorities jurisdiction over the land'. The establishment of local authorities is made through government legislation, which determines councils' shape and responsibilities. These have changed over time. For example, the Local Government Act 1972 (found at: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1972...) created new local authorities across England and decided their powers. Subsequent government legislation has amended and updated the various formations and powers of local authorities, usually for individual council areas or groups of councils.

The Commission, and its predecessor bodies, have - from time to time - carried out reviews of local authority boundaries (their internal arrangements and boundaries between councils). Our website lists records of those changes here: http://www.lgbce.org.uk/resources.

Any changes made to internal local authority boundaries since 2010 are also publicly available on our website at www.lgbce.org.uk

If you have any further query, please do not hesitate to contact me on the details provided below. Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

Kind regards
