Greater London, comprising 32 London Boroughs plus the City of London, has a population (2011) of 8,174,000.
The London County Council (LCC] was in existence between 1889 and 1965, but covered only a part of the current Greater London area. The current Greater London area came into existence in 1965 when the Greater London Council (GLC) was created together with the boroughs. The GLC was abolished in 1986. The current Greater London Authority (GLA), comprising the Mayor of London and London Assembly, was created in 2000.
London Councils is an organisation co-ordinating the work of the various London Boroughs for certain purposes.
