The Act came into force on 1 April 1996, but throughout the previous twelve months a shadow Flintshire County Council planned the organisation and delivery of its future services.

Archivist's note: The records of the new Flintshire County Council were allocated the collection code FN which contrasts them with the records of the pre-1974 Flintshire County Council, FC. The corporate activities of the new county council are distinguished in classes by a numerical sequence e.g. FN/1 Flintshire County Council Shadow Authority, FN/2 County Council Minutes and so forth. The departments of the new county council were allocated an alphabetic sequence e.g. FN/A Chief Executive, FN/B Finance.

Rules or conventions: This description follows ANW guidelines based on ISAD(G) second edition, AACR2, and LCSH.
