† not a London borough

History

The present boroughs came into existence on 1 April 1965 with the creation of the Greater London Council (GLC). The first London Borough elections had been held in 1964 with the newly elected London Borough Councils acting as "shadow" Authorities before coming into power the following year

They had wider authority than the inner London metropolitan boroughs and neighbouring municipal boroughs which they mostly replaced, but less power than the three county boroughs of Croydon, West Ham and East Ham, which ceased to exist at the same time.

The London boroughs became in effect unitary authorities (combining both county and borough functions, much like the former county boroughs) at the GLC's abolition on 1 April 1986. Since the creation (2000) of a new Greater London Authority, covering the former GLC area but with more limited powers, the boroughs now have powers intermediate between those of English unitary authorities and districts within administrative counties.

The City of London is administered by its own distinct body, the Corporation of London, which predates the London boroughs.
