The first association of the same name was formed in 1992-93 to fight a Non-notified Consent given to build the first large-scale Milford Mall retail development on previously residential and tourist accommodation land. Although the battle was lost, there were many improvements due to the efforts of the MRA and local residents.

The current Milford Residents Association was incorporated on 10 June 2008 to inform the community about the NZRPG Private Plan Change 34 to permit High Rise buildings up to 17 storeys high on the Milford Mall site. Milford is traditionally noted for its 'Village Scale' environment and values.

Milford Residents Association has subsequently developed into a community-wide organisation to inform community members of events and developments of interest and to be a voice for the wider Milford community.
