The Weatherfield Metropolitan Borough Council came into existence in 1974 as a result of the 1972 local government reforms. Its jurisdiction included the former Weatherfield County Borough Council territory and several other suburban areas. It was not alone in facing such a major change: most of the United Kingdom had similar mergers and some new creations of local government units along with the disappearance of many boroughs and even a few counties (though most counties retained some ceremonial functions).

The council's powers and responsibilities are similar to those of other councils, including roadworks, education, housing, and social services.

Several residents of Coronation Street have been elected councillors, and more than one has been Mayor.
