Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order makes slight realignments to the boundary between Greater London (London borough of Enfield) and Essex (district of Epping Forest, parish of Waltham Abbey). It also makes minor alterations within Greater London to the boundary between the London borough of Waltham Forest and the neighbouring boroughs of Enfield, Hackney and Haringey. The effect of almost all the changes is to realign the boundary along a river or watercourse. Consequential changes are made to local government electoral areas, petty sessional divisions and coroners' districts. Only one parish is affected; that of Waltham Abbey in Essex.

The map and table forming part of this Note (Pages 6 and 7) give a general guide to the location, area and population of the land affected. Prints of the detailed order maps (described in article 2) may be inspected at all reasonable times at the offices of the council for each district or London borough affected, and additionally at the offices of the Secretary of State for the Environment located in 2, Marsham Street, London SW1P 3EB.

The Local Government Area Changes Regulations 1976 (S.I. 1976/246, amended by S.I. 1978/247) contain general provisions regarding the effect of orders such as this one.
