Administrative HistoryFollowing local government reorganisation in April 1974, the Association of District Councils (ADC) was set up - in place of the Rural District Councils Association and the Urban District Councils Association - as the representative body of all non-metropolitan district councils in England and district councils in Wales. Although there had been discussions about the possibility of a single association to represent all local authorities in the run up to local government reorganisation in 1974, these proposals failed at that time. However, in March 1997 the ADC was wound up and in April, the Local Government Association (LGA) was set up to represent all local authorities in England and Wales
AcquisitionThese records were deposited by Local Government Association, Nov 1998
