CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The Council for the Principality was established by the Association of District Councils in 1974, in response to the reorganization of local government, which involved the creation of new District Councils. The Council's role was to co-ordinate the work of the District Councils, thereby in effect taking over many of the responsibilities of the Association of Welsh Local Authorities, which was dissolved. It met in Cardiff from May 1974 until it was superseded by the Council for Welsh Districts in April 1983. There was a degree of administrative continuity between these two bodies, as a result of which some of the papers in the archive date from after the Council for the Principality's dissolution. The Council was involved in the Welsh Consultative Council on Local Government Finance between 1978 and 1982.
