South Holland is a local government district of Lincolnshire. The district council is based in Spalding.

It was formed on April 1, 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, as a merger of the Spalding urban district with East Elloe Rural District and Spalding Rural District. All these were previously in the administrative county of Holland.

South Holland borders the borough of Boston to the north, The Wash and the county of Norfolk to the east, the county of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough unitary authority to the south, the Lincolnshire district of South Kesteven to the west, and the district of North Kesteven to the north-west.
