The package includes the Local Authorities before and after 1 April 2023.

On these versions scaled for poster printing, the smallest labels are legible when printed at A1 size or bigger.

In addition to the PDFs, raw Illustrator and SVG files are included for graphic designers who will find the artwork to be layered for easy manipulation and application. All elements are editable in Adobe Illustrator, including colours and fonts. Each local authority is a discrete polygon on its own sublayer interlocking perfectly with its neighbours.
