Local authority boundaries in Nottinghamshire

For the purposes of this site "Nottingham" is not defined strictly, but is basically the conurbation and some degree of surrounding area. If something appears to fit that, by all means add it in.

It's important to make the distinction because geographical Nottingham includes parts of several local council areas, and one of them is also called "Nottingham". This can lead to confusion, and the latter is often referred to as "Nottingham City" to distinguish. It's particularly an issue when people from local authorities and other public sector organisations who are used to thinking in terms of local authority boundaries meet other people who are not.

The local authority areas covered are Broxtowe, Gedling, Nottingham City and Rushcliffe, and possibly parts of Ashfield.
