In brief

South Cambridgeshire District Council is the local authority for the district of South Cambridgeshire in Cambridgeshire, England. Based in Cambourne, it forms the lower part of the two tier system of local government in the district, below Cambridgeshire County Council. The district council provides services such as waste collection and recycling, local planning and housing services, environmental health services and council tax collection. The district was formed in 1973 under the Local Government Act 1972 and took over powers from the former Chesterton Rural District and South Cambridgeshire Rural District on 1 April 1974
