In addition to the countries of the main islands above, there are other adjacent islands that are crown dependencies of the United Kingdom and are property of the crown.  They are self-governing with their own laws and legislative assemblies and do not have representatives in the UK Parliament. They are:

·       ISLE OF MAN

·        ISLES OF SCILLY.  St. Mary’s, Tresco, St. Agnes and Bryher.  The islands are located off the coast of Cornwall and Cornwall County provides some services 

o   THE CHANNEL ISLANDS consisting of:

·       BAILIWICK OF JERSEY. Island of Jersey and some small uninhabited islands.

·       BAILIWICK OF GURNSEY .

Islands of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and some smaller islands

The total number of islands in the British Isles number in the thousands.  Just choosing islands that are at least a ½ acre (0.2 hectares) in size, the Island of Great Britain has about 4,400 islands, of which about 210 are inhabited.  An additional 6,100 are islands only at low tide.  The Island of Ireland has about 850 islands, of which about 70 are inhabited and about 1000 only appear on low tide.  Some islands are only inhabited at certain seasons, for commercial fishing or for vacation homes. (Source Brian Adams, hydrographic officer, London)

Many of the small islands are under the jurisdiction of the adjacent counties on land.  Some are large enough to have their own local governments.

The following lists those islands that have their own local governments and are not crown dependencies:

IN ENGLAND

·        The Islands of Furness in the Irish Sea have a local government called the Borough of Barrow-in-Furness but are part of Cumbria County.

·        Canvey Island in the Thames has its own council and is part of Essex County.

IN WALES

·        Anglesey, the largest island in the Irish Sea is its own county administered by the Anglesey County Council.

IN SCOTLAND

·         Orkney.     Is a council area.  It is also a protected constituency which means it does not share a constituency with any part of the mainland. It does co-elect a Member of Parliament with Shetland. It is not a dependency of the UK. It is its own county.  Its many islands in the Orkney group are part of the County of Orkney. 

·         Shetland.   Is a council area.  It is also a protected constituency which means it does not share a constituency with any part of the mainland. It does co-elect a Member of Parliament with Orkney. It is not a dependency of the UK. Its many islands in the Shetland group are part of the County of Shetland.

Hebrides. Consists of:

o   Outer Hebrides or Western Islands has a unitary council based on the Isle of Lewis.

o   Inner Hebrides

                            

The Inner Hebrides have two separate local councils, one on the north and one to the south since the island grouping lies both to the north and south of a part of the mainland which forms a westward projection into the sea.
