Mandatory Reviews of non-Metropolitan Counties, Metropolitan Districts and London Boroughs

In July 1985 the Commission began the non-metropolitan county review programme of 43 reviews. The shire counties were divided, for practical purposes, into three blocks.  

In 1987 the Commission began a total of 36 administrative boundary reviews of the 32 London Boroughs and the City of London. Additionally six metropolitan county areas in England were reviewed. Greater Manchester, Tyne and Wear, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, Merseyside and West Midlands. In total 38 metropolitan administrative boundary reviews were undertaken, covering the 36 metropolitan districts.
