South Lakeland District Council was formed in 1974 and is one of the six District Authorities in Cumbria. The Council's responsibilities include - housing, town & country planning, environmental health, recreation and tourism, council tax and non-domestic rates collection, refuse collection, street cleansing, licensing, off-street parking.

From 1974 until the 2006 elections, no one political party was in overall control of the council. However, at the 2006 elections the Liberal Democrats gained the majority of seats and so have overall control of the council. The political balance of the council is now:
* 36 - Liberal Democrat
* 14 - Conservative
* 1 - Labour

The official transfer of council homes from South Lakeland District Council to South Lakes Housing (SLH) took place on the 5th of March 2011.
