Delegated commune


Dernière mise à jour le :12/04/2022


A delegated commune is a former commune which, in the context of the creation of a new commune resulting from the merger of several communes in accordance with articles L. 2113-2 et seq. of the general code of territorial collectivities, loses its status as a territorial collectivity, but retains a few particularities: a delegated mayor, who is a registrar and a judicial police officer, and who is likely to receive certain delegations of authority from the mayor; and, if necessary, an annexed mayor’s office, which is in particular responsible for civil status records.
