Port Talbot was one of the four local government districts of West Glamorgan, Wales from 1974 to 1996. It was formed under the Local Government Act 1972, from the municipal borough of Port Talbot and the urban district of Glyncorrwg, all previously in the administrative county of Glamorgan. It was known as the Borough of Afan, after the River Afan, until the borough was renamed Port Talbot on January 1 1986.

It was merged in 1996 with the district of Neath to form the county borough of Neath Port Talbot.
