Southgate was a local government district of Middlesexmarker from 1881 to 1965. It was part of the London postal district and Metropolitan Police District.

The area was historically part of the parish of Edmontonmarker, which adopted the Public Health Act 1848 and formed a local board of health to govern the area in 1850. In 1879 the ratepayers of Southgate petitioned for their area to be separated from Edmonton, and in 1881 Southgate Local Board was established, with nine members.

It was created an urban district in 1894, under the Local Government Act 1894. The urban district council was increased in size to 12 councillors in 1900. In 1933 Southgate was granted a charter of incorporation and became a municipal borough. The corporation of the borough consisted of a mayor, seven aldermen and twenty-one councillors.

In 1965, the municipal borough was abolished and its former area transferred to Greater London under the London Government Act 1963. Its former area was combined with that of the Municipal Borough of Enfieldmarker and the Municipal Borough of Edmontonmarker to form the present-day London Borough of Enfieldmarker.

The borough included Southgatemarker itself as well as neighbouring areas, including Palmers Greenmarker. The borough was administered from Southgate Town Hall, which is situated on Green Lanesmarker in Palmers Green, close to the junction with Broomfield Lane.
