Nelson City Council was created in 1992.
Local governance of Nelson began with Nelson Province in 1853, which covered the entire upper South Island.

In the 1989 local government reforms, Nelson was made part of the Nelson-Marlborough Regional Council, then in 1992 that regional council was split into multiple parts, including today's Nelson City Council.
