Greenwich Council

The London Borough of Greenwich was formed by the amalgamation of the Metropolitan Borough of Greenwich and part of the Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich to the east. It became a 'Royal' Borough on the 3rd February 2012, to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II and because of its historic links with the Royal Family.
