The district was formed by the local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 from part of the former county of Fife, namely:

- The districts of Cupar and St Andrews.
The council's headquarters were at Cupar.
The district was abolished by the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994 in 1996, when the region and three districts were replaced by the unitary Fife council area.
