The building of the Town Hall was completed in 1904. It is used by Hereford City Council, and is also one of the buildings used by the unitary Herefordshire Council. The building is also available for weddings and other functions.

Herefordshire has suffered a lot under local government reorganisation over the years. The County Council was united with Worcestershire County Council for a good many years. This was not very popular with many people in Herefordshire and eventually the united county was split into two again. But because Herefordshire is a thinly populated county, it was decided to make the revived Herefordshire County Council a unitary authority. This meant all the district councils disappeared. Hereford City Council became a parish council with very limited powers. However in 2000, its City status was reinstated. Thus Hereford City Council is one of the very rare examples of a city council which has the powers of a parish council.
