This is a list of the metropolitan and non-metropolitan

All listed below are non-metropolitan districts except for the London boroughs, metropolitan boroughs, the Isle of Wightand those that are labelled as " sui generis". Population figures are mid-year estimates for 2007from the Office for National Statistics[http://www.statistics.gov.uk/downloads/theme_population/Mid_2007_UK_England_&_Wales_Scotland_and_Northern_Ireland%20_21_08_08.zip] .seealso|List of rural and urban districts in England for a list of the pre- 1974districts.
Under section 74 of the
Local Government Act 1972, the council of a district, county or London borough (or county boroughin Wales) may change its name, providing the resolution to do so gains two-thirds of the votes at a special meeting. Until April 1, 1978, the council had to have the permission of the Secretary of State, but since that date they may do so unilaterally. At least one district name change was vetoed: the shadow authority for North Wolds wished to become "Bridlington and Yorkshire Wolds" prior to 1974 at the same time as other name changes were allowed.
Several English districts have done this, whilst others have been renamed under the
1990s UK local government reform. A few districts have even changed names twice.
† The resolutions to change the name of the district were made by the "shadow" councils elected on
June 7, 1973.
Additionally, one English county has been renamed.
Shropshirewas originally formally known as 'Salop'. Its name was changed effective April 1, 1980.
