History

The county borough was formed on 1 April 1996 following major reorganisation of local government in Wales. Most of the area was previously part of the former district of Wrexham Maelor in the former county of Clwyd but several communities come from the former district of Glyndŵr, also in the former county of Clwyd.

Its area includes parts of the ancient counties of Denbighshire and Flintshire which were abolished in 1974.

The headquarters of the authority are in Guild Hall, Queen's Square, Wrexham.
