All authorities are entitled to a minimum of one representative and one vote at the General Assembly.  All district councils have one representative and one vote.  For unitary authorities (metropolitan districts, London Boroughs and unitary authorities in shire areas) and for single service authorities in corporate membership, votes are allocated on the basis of population bands.  County councils have votes equal to the number of districts in their area.  Where an Authority is entitled to more than one vote, the Authority is entitled at its discretion to appoint further representatives up to a total equal to its number of votes, or four, whichever is the lesser.
