The village of Hayes was originally a Civil parish and first belonged to the Uxbridge Rural District from 1875 . From 1904 it formed an independent urban district , the Hayes Urban District . In 1930, Cranford and Harlington, which had previously been part of the dissolved Staines Rural District , were incorporated. As the district expanded, it was renamed Hayes and Harlington Urban District . In 1934, the Cranford area was shared with the Municipal Borough of Heston and Isleworth , reducing the area slightly by 361 acres (1.46 km²).

When the Greater London administrative region was founded in 1965, the London Borough of Hillingdon was formed from the merger of the Municipal Borough of Uxbridge and the Urban Districts Hayes and Harlington, Ruislip-Northwood and Yiewsley and West Drayton .
