Leeds City Council

Leeds City Council is responsible for all local authority statutory services in Leeds some of which it delivers in conjunction with other West Yorkshire authorities. Leeds was first a manor, then became designated a town with its own Leeds Corporation to administer it as a "Free Borough" in 1626. It became a city in 1893. The modern city council was established in 1974, took on additional responsibilities from the former West Yorkshire County Council in 1985, and is now one of the largest and most important city authorities in the UK. Headingley lies within the area of the Inner North West Community Committee, one of ten such committees which manage some specific area responsibilities, and this committee provided a Wellbeing Grant towards the cost of this website.
