Administrative/Biographical history: South Glamorgan County Council was created in 1974 following the Local Government Act 1972. Under this Act, the former county of Glamorgan was divided into Mid, South and West Glamorgan. Beneath South Glamorgan County Council were the district authorities of Cardiff City Council, and the Vale of Glamorgan Borough Council. The council's functions were carried out by departments overseen by committees of elected councillors. South Glamorgan County Council was abolished with local government re-organisation in 1996, as were its associated district authorities. Hence forth, the area has been administered by two unitary authorities: the County Council of the City and County of Cardiff, and the Vale of Glamorgan County Borough Council.
