 County borough - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
County borough is a term introduced in 1889 in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland (excluding Scotland), to refer to a borough or a city independent of county council control.
When county councils were first created in 1889, it was decided that to let them have authority over large towns or cities would be impractical, and so any large incorporated place would have the right to be a county borough, and thus independent from the administrative county it would otherwise come under.
The remaining county boroughs were abolished in 1974, and replaced with non-metropolitan districts and metropolitan districts, all beneath county councils in a two-tier structure.
