I am interested to learn other contributors' thoughts on the benefits, or otherwise, of adding child relations to parents for hierarchical United Kingdom administrative areas as in county/local authority district/civil parish or unitary authority/civil parish, for example. With the recent benefit of OS OpenData Boundary-Line, should it be widely practised? Is it worthwhile to add electoral boundaries and apply to them, also?

The mailing lists are a good way for discussions and generally "learning other contributors' thoughts". This site is not a discussion forum, but a system intended on finding clear answers to clear questions. See also the FAQ link at the top of this page.

For UK specific questions, the talk-gb list is the best place to go.
