Ashfield is a local government district in western Nottinghamshire, England. According to the 2001 UK census, it has a population of 111,387. The borough is mostly urban, with a tradition of coal mining. There are three towns in the district; the largest being Sutton-in-Ashfield. Settlements in the district include:

:Annesley, Annesley Woodhouse:Felley:Hucknall, Huthwaite:Jacksdale:Kirkby-in-Ashfield:Selston, Stanton Hill, Sutton-in-Ashfield:Teversal:Underwood

The district was formed on April 1, 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, by the merger of urban districts of Hucknall, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, and Sutton-in-Ashfield and parts of Basford Rural District namely the parishes of Annesley, Felley and Selston.

In the Spring of 1986, all departments, except for Direct Works, moved into purpose built office accommodation in the centre of Kirkby-in-Ashfield. These offices provide civic accommodation for members, together with a Council Chamber and two Committee Rooms.

District Offices have been maintained at Watnall Road, Hucknall, and Fox Street, Sutton-in-Ashfield, to cater for housing matters and cash receipts on a local basis.
