Settlement council (Ukraine)

A settlement council (Ukrainian: селищна рада, selyschna rada) is a local government area in Ukraine that is associated with urban-type settlement localities. Along with their subordination to the rural raions they exist within, some settlement councils exists within the boundaries of cities and thus are subordinate to the cities in which they exist.

An urban-type settlement local government can contain multiple urban-type settlement localities within their jurisdictions. Their status was defined by a 1997 Verkhovna Rada law "On the Local Self-Government of Ukraine."[1] As of 2015, there are a total of 783 settlement councils in Ukraine.[2] A total of 102 urban-type settlements localities have no associated settlement councils.[2]
