| Non-metropolitan district, Borough status in the United Kingdom|South Wight Wikipedia
South Wight was a non-metropolitan district with the status of a borough on the Isle of Wight in England from 1974 to 1995.
The district was formed by the Local Government Act 1972, and was a merger of Sandown-Shanklin and Ventnor urban districts and Isle of Wight Rural District. It was one of two districts on the island formed in 1974 - the other was Medina.
Following a review by the Local Government Commission for England, the borough was abolished on 1 April 1995, when a single Isle of Wight Council replaced the island's county council and two district councils.
