- Description: In 1935 the boundaries of Abergele and Pensarn Urban District Council (UDC), Denbighshire, were extended, and the authority was renamed Abergele UDC. The Council consisted of councillors and a chairman, elected for three years. The UDC's responsibilities included sanitary services, sewerage, refuse collection, housing, streets, cemeteries, libraries, parks, controls on buildings such as petrol stations, and licensing of public entertainments. UDCs were administered by a number of committees and by appointed officers including a Clerk, Treasurer, Medical Officer of Health, Surveyor, Rating Officer and Sanitary Inspector. Abergele UDC was abolished following local government reorganisation in 1974, becoming part of Colwyn Borough Council, Clwyd.

A collection is arranged in order to show context. This means that it will be catalogued to preserve its original order where possible. The collection will be arranged into sub-sections, such as series, files, items, and these will all be clearly related. Archival collections often have folder type structure if they are catalogued to this level of detail. The researcher can then see the context of an individual item, such as a letter - they can see that it forms part of a series, and the series is within a larger collection.
