1974 - 1996 South Glamorgan[edit | edit source]
South Glamorgan was a short-lived county in Wales, formed during the controversial re-organisation of local government in 1974, but abolished following further re-organisation in 1996.
The county was formed under the Local Government Act 1972 out of the historic county of Glamorgan.
Following further local government reorganisation, the county of Mid Glamorgan was abolished on April 1, 1996.
The former county of South Glamorgan was divided into the county of the Vale of Glamorgan and the county and city of Cardiff.
