An instant download containing London Boroughs, Metropolitan Boroughs and Non-Metropolitan Districts divided into Wards. The City of London has its own type of Wards based on ancient and permanent sub-divisions of the City. This product is a lookup between every Postcode in Greater London and the Electoral Ward and Districts (Boroughs) they fall within. As Postcode boundaries and administrative boundaries bear no relation to each other, this product is ideal for those applications where you need to allocate addresses to their respective Wards and Boroughs or where you need to determine all the Postcodes falling within a Ward or District.
Greater London was established in 1965 as an administrative unit covering the London Metropolis. It was not defined as a County but had a two-tier structure, with the lower tier being the London Boroughs. Following the abolition of the Greater London Council (GLC) in 1986 the Boroughs became single-tier authorities, but Greater London was still widely recognised, especially for statistical and mapping purposes. In 2000 however a two-tier structure was re-established when the new Greater London Authority adopted responsibility for a range of citywide policy areas.
