There is a local saying that ‘Stratton was a market town when Bude was but a furzy down’ which reflects the fact that Stratton was a long established, prominent ancient market town when Bude was simply a gorse-covered downland with few dwellings.

Bude gradually grew from a small village and eventually evolved into a town with the arrival of the Victorian age. Engineering ingenuity saw the development of the Bude Canal and Harbour, enabling sea sand to be transported inland to improve soil, whilst the railway line finally arrived in Bude (rather than nearby Holsworthy) enhancing accessibility and so its popularity as a seaside destination rose. By the beginning of the 20th century Bude’s prominence eclipsed that of Stratton.

Bude-Stratton Town Council was created in 1974 following local government reforms when District Councils were created. The forerunner of the Town Council was Bude Urban District Council. Prior to 1974 local government was administered in two tiers, County Council and Urban District Council, whilst post 1974 it was administered at three levels, County Council, District Council and Town or Parish Council.

On April 1st 2009, following another restructure of local government administration, North Cornwall District Council and Cornwall County Council ceased to exist and the services they provided came under the remit of the newly formed unitary authority, Cornwall Council.
