English Counties

Below is a list of Non-Administrative Ceremonial Counties in England and their association with Administrative Counties, Unitary Authorities and Districts. Where available, the Relation bounding them has also been listed. Some ceremonial counties are also administrative counties covering the same area (Suffolk); some administer only part of the county (for example Essex) with other parts of the ceremonial county administered by a unitary authority (such as Southend-on-Sea in Essex). Some have no administrative functions (for example Berkshire) with all administrative functions delegated to constituent unitary authorities. Some counties are administered by a single unitary authority (for example Cornwall, Isle of Wight). The boundaries of the traditional counties, ceremonial counties and administrative counties vary (for example the traditional county of Surrey includes Croydon but for administrative purposes Croydon is part of Greater London.

Validation

User:EdLoach has automated daily running of a script which uses a Visual Basic program for validating boundaries, with the resulting report uploaded here somewhere about 13:30 UK local time. False positives may be included where not all national boundary ways are in the GreatBritain Geofabrik extract which is used for the validation. If a boundary is reported as faulty but looks OK, it is often down to inconsistent use of rules (a mixture of blank (traditional style) roles, and "outer" (alternative style) roles). The "Misc" link shows the on screen warnings that the Visual Basic program also shows. Gary68's boundaries.pl also used to be run (see this page's edit history), but was discontinued from 23/10/2013).

The boundaries and their relations

Ceremonial boundary relations are tagged as per administrative boundary relations, but use boundary=ceremonial to distinguish them. If the ceremonial county is the same as the administrative county then boundary=administrative is used and no separate relation need be created, although this would be advisable due to the fact that occasional boundary changes to the administrative and ceremonial areas are not always simultaneous and "permanent" divergence is possible.
