Criticism??[edit]

I'm sure there are lots of criticisms of the council, is a big section for one specific criticism, originally put on this page as vandalism, necessary? Sneyton (talk) 15:17, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Most criticism section must have started with one specific criticsm and expanded from there. Better in a section than having a flame war in the intro. The Adept (talk) 15:21, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

I've adapted it slightly to remove some of the bias and unreferenced POV Sneyton (talk) 15:26, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

In your deleting of the unreferenced POV you took out about the SU campaigning against it but it not having an affect. I think that should be kept in as its a fact not a POV. --Knight Ripper (talk) 15:43, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Council type[edit]

Copied from User talk:MRSC

You changed the type of council from city to non-metropolitan district. In the article only Nottinghamshire is listed as a NMD or 'shire county' not the city of Nottingham Council, which is listed as a unitary authority according to Local government in England. Nottinghamshire County Council would presumably fit this bill but maybe I'm misunderstanding what a NMD is. KlickingKarl (talk) 19:46, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

End of section copied from User talk: MRSC
'City Council' has no defined meaning in the English system, it is just an honour bestowed on the council (like 'borough'). Nottingham is a non-metropolitan district (a unitary one) so its council is a non-metropolitan district council. Because it has borough status it is entitled to be known as Nottingham Borough Council and because it has city status it is entitled to be known as Nottingham City Council. Regardless of the style used, the district is still a non-metropolitan district. MRSC (talk) 20:03, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Non-metropolitan district are those within non metropolitan counties. Nottingham is not, it is a unitary authority. The Adept (talk) 15:26, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Updated again. Nottingham is an non-metropolitan district that is also an non-metropolitan county (a unitary authority). It is not a metropolitan district. [1] MRSC (talk) 16:23, 30 August 2012 (UTC)
