Catthorpe
gives its name to the nearby Catthorpe Interchange road junction formed by the M1 and M6 motorways and the A14 road, which is known to be regularly congested owing to its non-standard design. The A14 passes under both motorways; these underpasses were built in the 1960s for the former A427 , which passed through Catthorpe. In 2009, the Highways Agency announced their preferred design for the upgrade of the junction after a public consultation in 2008

Civil Parishes In England
In England, a CIVIL PARISH is a territorial designation which is the lowest tier of local government below districts and counties , or their combined form, the unitary authority . It is an administrative parish , in contrast to an ecclesiastical parish . A civil parish can range in size from a large town with a population of about 80,000 to a single village with fewer than a hundred inhabitants. In a limited number of cases a parish might include a whole city where city status has been granted by the Monarch . Reflecting this diverse nature, a civil parish may be known as a town, village, neighbourhood or community by resolution of its parish council . Approximately 35% of the English population live in a civil parish. As of 31 December 2015 there were 10,449 parishes in England. On 1 April 2014, Queen\'s Park became the first civil parish in Greater London . Before 2008 their creation was not permitted within a London borough

There are a total of 326 districts made up of 36 metropolitan boroughs , 32 London boroughs , 201 non-metropolitan districts , 55 unitary authorities , as well as the City of London and the Isles of Scilly which are also districts, but do not correspond to any of these categories.

Greater London
and the Isles of Scilly
Isles of Scilly
. As originally constituted, the metropolitan and non-metropolitan counties each consisted of multiple districts , had a county council and were also the counties for the purposes of Lieutenancies . Later changes in legislation during the 1980s and 1990s have allowed counties without county councils and 'unitary authority' counties of a single district. Counties for the purposes of Lieutenancies are now defined separately , based on the metropolitan and non-metropolitan counties. In 2009, there were further structural changes in some areas , resulting in a total of 83 metropolitan and non-metropolitan counties. These 83 counties collectively consist of 292 districts or district-level subdivisions, i.e

The London region (also known as Greater London ) has a directly elected Mayor and Assembly . Six regions have local authority leaders\' boards to assist with correlating the headline policies of local authorities
