Part of the Macmillan Building and Surveying Series book series (BASS)


Outside Greater London, each county has two tiers of local authorities concerned with town and country planning. Some planning functions — notably the preparation of structure plans are the responsibility of the county council as ‘county planning authority’, but many matters have been entrusted to the district councils. In Greater London, all aspects of town and country planning rest with the Greater London borough councils and the metropolitan district councils.1
