Royal Commission on Local Government in Greater Londonconsidered the district for inclusion in Greater London. However in 1965, when Middlesex was abolished and its former area was transferred to Greater London under the London Government Act 1963, the Potters Bar Urban District was instead transferred to Hertfordshire.
In 1974, under the
Local Government Act 1972, the urban district was abolished and its former area was combined with that of Elstree Rural District, Bushey Urban Districtand part of Watford Rural Districtto form the present-day borough of Hertsmere.
