city vs. City[edit]

The articles have shown some confusion between the city of St Albans and the wider City of St Albans district. This map should held make the distinction clearer:

  1. St Albans: this article relates to the unparished area commonly known as the city of St Albans that was the entirety of the city before 1974
  2. City of St Albans: this article relates to the non-metropolitan district that has official city status and is governed by St Albans City Council, containing nine civil parishes (Harpenden, Colney Heath, Harpenden Rural, London Colney, Redbourn, St Michael, St Stephen, Sandridge and Wheathampstead) and St Albans unparished area.

It is wrong, for example, to present statistics, status details or emblems, twinning etc. of one entity as if it relates to the other. MRSC (talk) 14:46, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
