More about

The civic centre for Leicestershire County Council is County Hall, Glenfield, built in 1965. The council was originally formed in 1889 and covered the administrative county of Leicestershire, excluding Leicester. In 1974, Leicester city and the county of Rutland were added to the council. A further reorganisation in 1997 made the City of Leicester and the County of Rutland Unitary Authorities responsible for all of the local government services in their areas. Leicestershire is divided into 52 electoral divisions and has three tiers of local government which are the county council, seven district or borough councils and parish councils. The seven district councils in Leicestershire are: Blaby District Council, Charnwood Borough Council, Harborough District Council, Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, Melton Borough Council, North West Leicestershire District Council, Oadby & Wigston Borough Council.
