I like this - a few points:

Misspellings - Basildon, Fylde, Nuneaton, Fareham

Anachronism - in London the boroughs were known simply as 'Barking' and 'Hammersmith' until 1979 and 1980.

Scilly Isles is a sui generis authority and wasn't a district council within Cornwall.

And while it's not strictly correct, as it was renamed between the initial elections in 1973 and the transfer of powers in 1974, it might be nice to accept 'Pastonacres' as well as North Norfolk.
