Counties

We are rolling out the County Pages in stages. Eventually every local area will have their own County Pages website.

Areas with their own pages so far:

Please note: The counties used in the County Pages do not necessarily correspond to the modern Ordnance Survey areas used by the PAS database. This is because the County Pages are designed to be easy to use for visitors, whereas the Ordnance Survey areas are based on complex boundaries set for elections and use by local government.

For example, the county of Leicestershire used in the County Pages covers ‘Leicestershire (County)‘ and the ‘City of Leicester (Unitary Authority)‘. When searching for Leicestershire finds on the PAS database, we have made sure that all relevant areas are included in the search results.
