This situation occurs nationally; it's just been highlighted around 
I created an admin 10 relation for the city of Bath, but had it pointed 
to me that it didn't have a direct council & so the boundary was changed 
to 'place'

I can probably predict the response, but it might be worth personally 
inviting user Alex Kemp to the meeting.
