Home Office Minister Charles Wardle today announced plans to replace the existing eight county fire authorities in Wales by three combined fire authorities.

Fire services in Wales are currently provided by eight fire brigades under the authority of the eight Welsh County Councils: Clwyd; Dyfed; Gwent; Gwynedd; Mid Glamorgan; Powys; South Glamorgan; and West Glamorgan. The areas covered by the three new combined fire authorities will be a follows:

NORTH WALES: Anglesey; Caernarfonshire & Merionethshire;Denbighshire; Flintshire; Aberconwy & Colwyn; Wrexham; MID & WEST WALES: Cardiganshire; Carmarthenshie; Pembrokeshire; MID WALES: Swansea; SOUTH WALES: Cardiff; Monmouthshire; Bridgend; Caerphilly; Heads of the Valleys; Newport; Rhondda, Taff, Torfaen; The Vale of Glamorgan.

Swansea and the Neath and Port Talbot areas will be included in a combined Mid and West Wales fire authority. This will take place when local government in Wales is reorganised in 1996. The proposals were announced in the White Paper 'Local Government in Wales: a Charter for the Future' which was published in March 1993.
