Greater London Boroughs
Posted on Jun 12, 2002 – 04:57 AM by Bill McCann
On April 1st 1965 the London Government Act 1963 came into force. This greatly extended the boundaries of London and created thirty-two Boroughs to make up the administrative unit of Greater London. This does not include the City of London which remains a separate administrative unit. Most Boroughs now maintain their own web pages which provide a wealth of local information. These are listed below. Many also have a short local history section.
