Royal Charter CompanyThe Royal Charter Company
Up to the 1973 and 1974 reform of the regional governments, the districts were cities with statutes that conferred significant authority and were administered by a municipality under the leadership of a canon. Companies had been restructured by law which began in 1835 (1840 in Ireland). Most of the older communities could be traced back to mediaeval documents or were of Saxon descent.
The majority of the areas established after 1835 were new cities of industry, health resorts or suburbs, which had emerged after the end of the war. Municipal enterprises could also have the statute of a municipality. District statute no longer means a municipality or an area. Beyond Greater London, counties in metro and non-metropolitan areas shall be accorded county district designation under the terms of Section 245 of the Local Government Act 1972 of the District Government.
In this section, the counsellor of a Rotary district may ask the sovereign for a charter that will give him or her the statute of a Rotary area. After receiving the request, the priest may, on the recommendation of the Privy Councillor, issue a charter: The documents provided under the 1972 Act may allow the municipal authorities to nominate "local dignitaries" previously nominated by an eliminated municipal group.
Citizen benefits or entitlements of a former district may be granted to the residents of the new district. The municipal councillors can make a decision which makes "persons of rank" and "persons who have served outstandingly" honourable members of the district.
