Telford and Wrekin is a unitary district with borough status in the West Midlands region of Englandmarker. The district was created in 1974 as The Wrekin, then a non-metropolitan district of Shropshiremarker.

The borough's major settlement is Telfordmarker, a new town designated in the 1960s incorporating the existing towns of Dawleymarker, Madeleymarker, Oakengatesmarker and Wellingtonmarker. The next largest population centre is Newportmarker, a market town to the north of Telford.

On April 1, 1998, as a result of the Local Government Commission for England's review, the district became a unitary authority, independent from Shropshire County Council. The headquarters of the council are in Telford Town Centremarker. It remains part of the Shropshire ceremonial county and shares institutions such as the Fire and Rescue Service with the rest of Shropshire. Telford and Wrekin comes under the West Mercia Constabulary, based in Worcestermarker.

The borough borders Staffordshire, but is mostly surrounded by the non-metropolitan county of Shropshiremarker. The district was formed on April 1, 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, and covered Dawley, Newport, Oakengates and Wellington urban districts, Wellington Rural Districtmarker and part of Shifnalmarker parish in the Shifnal Rural Districtmarker.

Telford and Wrekin applied unsuccessfully for City status in 2000. It was granted borough status in 2002.
