CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The Committee of Welsh District Councils was established in April 1983 by the Welsh Branch of the Association of District Councils, with the purpose of co-ordinating the work of the District Councils in Wales. Its predecessor in this role had been the Council for the Principality (formed in 1974, also under the Association of District Councils, and superseding the Association of Welsh Local Authorities), and the Committee of Welsh District Councils was itself succeeded by the Council of Welsh Districts in 1989. The line of descent between these bodies after 1974 was distinct; they existed in direct succession, they performed almost identical functions, and many of the staff worked for more than one of them. As a result, some of the papers in the archive cover periods before and after the existence of the Committee of Welsh District Councils.
