Has two definitions under the Local Government Act 2002. It can mean the area within a city or district where a community board has been established with a population of at least 1500 people. Alternatively, it may have a more general meaning in relation to, for example, statutory responsibilities on a council to consult the community, in which case it means the whole district of that local authority.
