Catalan term or phrase: veguerial
Delimitació de l’Àrea metropolitana

Amb independència de quines puguin ser les fórmules organitzatives que, dins del marc ***veguerial***, atenguin les especificitats urbanístiques i de serveis de l’àrea metropolitana, convé concretar-ne una delimitació territorial, encara que sigui només a tall indicatiu.


I am not sure how to translate this. I see that, amongst other things, 'vegueria' means:


2 1 Territori a què s'estenia la jurisdicció d'un veguer.

2 Cadascuna de les nou agrupacions supracomarcals en què fou distribuït el territori de Catalunya en el projecte del 1933 i que en la Divisió Territorial de Catalunya (1936) foren anomenades regions.

Should I put the Catalan word in italics and add 'vicariate' or 'parish' in brackets or simply translate it as 'vicariate' or 'parish' or something else?

Many thanks in advance for any ideas!

Just an administrative division -
Catalunya was divided into 10 such zones - in that case parish might be too small - county too English
