The original parish council was formed in December 1894 and covered the whole area of Hucclecote. In April 1967, the construction of the M5 motorway effectively cut the parish in two; the part of Hucclecote below the motorway bridge towards Gloucester was taken into the boundary of Gloucester City. The remainder of Hucclecote stayed as part of the Rural District Council.
