Cheshire West and Chester is a unitary authority area with borough status, in the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It was established in April 2009 as part of the structural changes to local government that occurred that year, by virtue of an order under the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007. It replaced the boroughs of Ellesmere Port and Neston, Vale Royal and Chester District and its council took over the function of the former Cheshire County Council within its area. The rest of ceremonial Cheshire is composed of Cheshire East, Warrington and Halton.
