South Somerset is a local government district in Somerset, England.

The South Somerset district covers and area of 370 square miles (958 km2)[1] ranging from the borders with Devon and Dorset to the edge of the Somerset Levels. It has a population of approximately 158,000.[2] The administrative centre of the district is Yeovil.

The district was formed on 1 April 1974, and was originally known as Yeovil, adopting its present name in 1985. It was formed by the merger of the municipal boroughs of Chard, Yeovil, along with Crewkerne and Ilminster urban districts and the Chard Rural District, Langport Rural District, Wincanton Rural District and Yeovil Rural District.

The Council covers the whole of the Yeovil constituency, and part of Somerton and Frome.

It is currently Liberal Democrat controlled, and has Beacon Council status.
