Settlement of the area dates from the mid 1800s. Population was minimal until the late 1800s, with growth through to the early 1900s. Significant residential development occurred from the post-war years. The population declined marginally between 1991 and 2006, and then was relatively stable between 2006 and 2011, a result of little change in dwelling stock and the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
