Sedgefield is a local government district and borough in County Durham, in north-east England. It has a population of about 87,000 (2001 UK census). It is named after Sedgefield; but its largest town is Newton Aycliffe. Other places include Shildon, Ferryhill and Spennymoor.

The borough was formed in 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, by the merger of Sedgefield Rural District, Spennymoor and Shildon urban districts and part of Darlington Rural District.

The district will be abolished as part of the 2009 structural changes to local government in England.
