The district includes:

[edit] Naming

The district's irregular sounding name reflects its diverse nature, with two main urban areas and several villages: typically districts with the status of cities are known simply as Cities (for example the City of Peterborough or the City of York).

The district was created on April 1, 1974, as a merger of the borough and city of St Albans, the Harpenden urban district and most of St Albans Rural District. City status was inherited by the entire district [1], as may be determined from legislation and from the lack of charter trustees.

The council however calls itself St Albans District Council, although council vehicles, letterhead and website bear the brand St Albans City & District.
