Municipal borough (after 1937)
Wanstead and Woodford was a local government district from 1934 to 1965 in southwest Essex, England. A merger of two former urban districts, it was suburban to London and part of the Metropolitan Police District.
In 1934, as part of a county review order, a new urban district was created as a merger of their areas.
District and borough
The urban district became a municipal borough in 1937.
In 1956 the municipal borough was enlarged by gaining 23 acres (93,000 m2) from the Municipal Borough of Ilford while 2 acres (8,100 m2) were transferred the other way. The transfer did not affect any population.
In 1965, under the London Government Act 1963, the municipal borough was abolished and its former area transferred to Greater London and combined with that of other districts to form the London Borough of Redbridge.
