MCC existed for a total of twelve years. It was established on 1 April 1974 by the Local Government Act 1972. However, along with five other metropolitan county councils and the Greater London Council it was abolished on 31 March 1986 by the Local Government Act 1985.
MCC was a strategic authority running regional services such as transport, strategic planning, emergency services and waste disposal. Elections were held to the council in 1973, 1977 and 1981. Elections were due to be held in 1985 but these were cancelled due to the council's abolition.
