CIVIC HERALDRY OF ENGLAND AND WALES-CONTENTS
CONTENTS

Since the 2009 structural changes to local government in England (effective 1st April 2009) and the loss of some district/borough councils the arms of current authorities (county, county borough, borough, district, town and parish councils) are now organised on a regional basis. The regions are largely based on Government Office Regions, except the South East Region has been split and the nothern areas of Lincolnshire are included in the East Midlands Region. The arms of obsolete authorities (county borough, urban and rural district councils) are sill organised by county, except Wales which is organised into three sections -pre 1974, 1974-1996 and current (post 1996).
