In 1974, Wales was re-divided for local government purposes into thirty-seven districts. Districts were the second tier of local government introduced by the Local Government Act 1972, being subdivisions of the eight counties introduced at the same time. This system of two-tier local government was abolished in 1996 and replaced with the current system of unitary principal areas. For the list of districts before 1974, see List of urban and rural districts in Wales.

  • In 1974, Wales was re-divided for local government purposes into thirty-seven districts. Districts were the second tier of local government introduced by the Local Government Act 1972, being subdivisions of the eight counties introduced at the same time. This system of two-tier local government was abolished in 1996 and replaced with the current system of unitary principal areas. Each district was administered by an elected district council. The council was entitled to petition for a charter granting borough status, whereupon the district became a borough and the district council a borough council headed by a mayor. In addition, a district could be granted Letters Patent granting city status. For the list of districts before 1974, see List of urban and rural districts in Wales. (en)
  • Nel 1974 il Galles fu ri-diviso per scopi di amministrazione locale in 37 distretti. Ogni contea amministrativa (vedi Contee preservate del Galles) era composta da alcuni distretti. Dal 1996 i distretti sono confluiti nelle aree principali. Per i distretti prima del 1974, vedi Lista di distretti urbani e rurali del Galles. (it)
  • Cada distrito era administrado por um conselho, ou concílio, distrital eleito. O Conselho tinha direito de pedira a concessão do estatuto de borough, podendo tornar-se o conselho dem um borough e o conselho do borough (borough concil) devia ser chefiado por um prefeito. Além disso, o distrito podia também se valer de uma carta-patente e ganhar a categoria de uma cidade.
