Oakleigh was proclaimed a city in August 1927. Portion of the Shire of Mulgrave was annexed in December 1948, creating the East Ward of the city. In October 1959, portions of Moorabbin City and Mulgrave, Springvale and Noble Park Shires were annexed to the City of Oakleigh. The municipality was re-subdivided into Hughesdale, Oakleigh, Monash and Clayton Wards in May 1960.
This council was abolished in December 1994 as part of a state-wide program of local government reform enacted between 1993 and 1995. The reform process reduced the number of councils from 210 to 78. The City of Monash was appointed as the successor in law to the City of Oakleigh and has assumed its rights, assets and liabilities.
