The area originally belonged to the borough of Sumner. A petition in 1920 by the majority of its residents asked for it to be included as a riding of the Heathcote County. Whilst the mayor of Sumner, John Barr, submitted against the petition, it was granted and took effect on 1 April 1921. As a result of the 1989 local government reforms, Heathcote County was amalgamated with and became part of Christchurch City Council.
