Non-unitary authorities are administrative counties that are subdivided into a number of districts, which have district councils. Unitary Authorities are either administrative counties consisting of a single district, or districts of a county with no county council. The council of a Unitary Authorities are refered to as "district council", unless it converges with a borough, city, or historic county (in the cases of Rutland and Herefordshire), in which case it is called a "borough council", "city council" or "county council".
England is also divided into governmental regions: Greater London, South East England, South West England, East of England, East Midlands, West Midlands, North West England, Yorkshire and the Humber and North East England.
This is a list of areas with a council with no council above them. It is ordered according to legal definition: counties with county councils; the three types of unitary authorities: counties without county councils, metropolitan districts, non-metropolitan districts; and London Boroughs.
