South Herefordshire

South Herefordshire

South Herefordshire was an English local government district, based at Ross-on-Wye, from 1974 to 1988.

It was formed on April 1, 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, from part of the administrative county of Herefordshire, as one of nine districts of the new non-metropolitan county of Hereford and Worcester. South Herefordshire combined Ross-on-Wye urban district, Dore and Bredwardine Rural District, Hereford Rural District and Ross and Whitchurch Rural District. [ [ The English Non-metropolitan Districts (Definition) Order 1972] ] The district entirely surrounded the district of Hereford.

On April 1, 1998, the district was abolished as Herefordshire was split out from Hereford and Worcester as a unitary authority. [ [ The Hereford and Worcester (Structural, Boundary and Electoral Changes) Order 1996, Part II (Office of Public Sector Information)] ]
