London Boroughs 50th Anniversary
1 April 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the creation of the London boroughs. Created at the same time as Greater London on 1 April 1965 by the London Government Act 1963, 12 boroughs were designated as inner London boroughs and 20 as outer London boroughs and they shape the way we live today.
Throughout 2015, there will be an opportunity to explore and reflect on how London's local councils have influenced our lives over the past 50 years – by shaping our local neighbourhoods, improving social housing and local transport, delivering public health services, and supporting our children’s education.
On the 19 of May Professor Travers from the LSE gave a lecture at the City of London and the publication that was made for the lecture is now available for download.
