Unitary Authorities (Wales)
Since 1996 Wales has been divided into unitary principal areas. Councils were designated by the legislation that created them as either "county councils" or "county borough councils". County and county borough councils have identical powers but are listed as separate entities in Schedule 1 of the FOI Act.
