Non-metropolitan county councils


A non-metropolitan county, or colloquially, shire county, is a county-level entity in England that is not a metropolitan county.

The counties typically have populations of 300,000 to 1.4 million. The term shire county is, however, an unofficial usage.

Many of the non-metropolitan counties bear historic names and most end in the suffix "-shire" such as Wiltshire or Staffordshire.

Of the remainder, some counties had the -shire ending and have lost it over time; such as Devon and Somerset.

"Shire county" is, strictly, a dual-language tautology since the French-derived "county" means the same as the older Anglo-Saxon word "shire".

All 27 county councils for areas with a two-tier structure of local governance will have all of their seats up for election.

These will be first-past-the-post elections in a mixture of single-member and multi-member electoral divisions.
