The borough was formed in 1965 from the Municipal Borough of Uxbridge, Hayes and Harlington Urban District, Ruislip-Northwood Urban District and Yiewsley and West Drayton Urban District of Middlesex.
The councils involved were initially unable to decide upon a name, with Keith Joseph suggesting to provide the name 'Uxbridge' for the borough in October 1963, later revised to Hillingdon.
Parks and open spacesEdit
The London Borough of Hillingdon is responsible for 239 parks and open spaces within its boundaries. Since much of the area is within the Green Belt, and as it is one of the least densely populated of all the London boroughs, there are large areas of land properly called open space. They range in size from the Colne Valley corridor to the smallest gardens and playing fields.
It includes the areas:
- Eastcote Village
- Hayes, Hillingdon
- Hayes End
- Hayes Town
- Newyears Green
- North Hillingdon
- Northwood Hills
- Ruislip Common
- Ruislip Gardens
- Ruislip Manor
- South Harefield
- South Ruislip
- West Drayton
The borough also includes RAF Northolt.
