Principal Area Boundary Reviews

The Commission carried out a total of 93 Principal Area boundary Reviews between 1974 and 1992. These ad hoc reviews became an important and variegated part of the work programme. The option of reviewing individual authorities' boundaries at their request, outside the mandatory programmes, injected an additional element of flexibility.
