Principal Local Authority Register for Wales (GB-PLA)


The Principal Local Authority Register has been developed with the Welsh Government and Government Digital Service (GDS), and contains identifiers for 22 county and county borough councils. The register may not cover all local authorities as it focuses on bodies providing mainstream local government services.

It uses the second portion of [ISO_3166-2]( codes and includes all codes listed for Wales (WLS).

  • Coverage: GB
