In 1894 a local government act decreed that all parishes with a population of 300 or more were to form a council so in compliance with this act, Ickleford held their first parish meeting on 4th December 1894. Following a proposal by G Bird, and no other proposals, Captain Hugh Dudley Ryder became the first chairman of the parish council. Since then there have been 24 chairmen.

In the early days items on the agenda were mostly about sewer ditches, the allotment rents and the state of the footpaths. Today the problems facing the councillors include fast moving traffic through the village and increasing facilities, as well as still maintaining the footpaths and commons (see minutes).

The Parish Council consists of 8 elected members and a clerk.
