Wokingham (borough)


Wokingham (borough)

Wokingham is a local government district in Berkshire, United Kingdom. It is named after its main town, Wokingham. Other places in the district include Arborfield, Barkham, Charvil, Earley, Finchampstead, Hurst, Sonning, Remenham, Ruscombe, Shinfield, Twyford, Wargrave, Winnersh and Woodley.

The district was formed under the Local Government Act 1972, on April 1, 1974 by the merger of the borough of Wokingham and Wokingham Rural District. It is governed by Wokingham Borough Council (formerly "Wokingham District Council"), which has been a unitary authority since April 1, 1998, following the abolition of Berkshire County Council under the Banham Review.

The district was granted borough status in 2007, following a petition to the Queen. [" [http://www.wokingham.gov.uk/Easysite/lib/serveDocument.asp?doc=82479&pgid=38824&assetID=14415 Annual Monitoring Report December 2007] ", P.4 bottom, Wokingham Borough Council]
