In 1894, under the Local Government Act 1894, Sunbury on Thames was created an urban district of the administrative county of Middlesex. It originally covered just the parish of Sunbury, but gained the parishes of Shepperton and Littleton in 1930 with the abolition of the Staines Rural District.
The Royal Commission on Local Government in Greater London considered the district for inclusion in Greater London. However under the London Government Act 1963 in 1965 the bulk of Middlesex formed Greater London, but the Sunbury on Thames Urban District was transferred to the administrative county of Surrey.
