Brentwood Borough Council
The Borough of Brentwood is a local government district and borough in Essex in the East of England.
The borough is named after its main town of Brentwood. There are still large areas of woodland including Shenfield Common, Hartswood, Weald Country Park, and Thorndon Country Park. The original district council was formed in 1974 from the former area of Brentwood Urban District, part of Epping and Ongar Rural District and part of Chelmsford Rural District. By royal charter, the district became a borough on 27 April 1993.
