Early details of the Billericay Union of Parishes, Workhouses and Rural Sanitary Districts operating between 1725 until the early 1900's can be found on the Billericay Town Councils Website by clicking here.
In 1972 the Local Government Act created Basildon District Council and abolished the Billericay Parish which stood as an individual body. This would have remained, however a group of Billericay residents formed a steering committe to campaign for Parish Councils to be re-introduced in Billericay. This then created new parishes in 1997 of:
- Great Burstead & South Green
- Little Burstead
- Ramsden Crays
- Ramsden Bellhouse
- Billericay Wards
