In 1830, part of the territory of Clichy was detached and became the commune of Batignolles-Monceau. On 1 January 1860, the city of Paris was enlarged by annexing neighboring communes. Most of Batignolles-Monceau was annexed by the city of Paris, and now forms the major part of the 17th arrondissement of Paris, although a small part of the territory of Batignolles-Monceau was returned to Clichy.

On 11 January 1867, part of the territory of Clichy was detached and merged with a part of the territory of Neuilly-sur-Seine to create the commune of Levallois-Perret.
