Surrey Heath is a local government district with borough status in Surreymarker, Englandmarker. Its council is based in Camberleymarker. Much of the area is within the Green Belt.

The 3 May 2007 borough elections produced 30 Conservative seats, 7 Liberal Democrat seats, 2 Labour seats and 1 other.

The borough acquired its name because it includes extensive areas of heath and woodland including Chobham Commonmarker and Lightwatermarker Country Park.

The western section of the district is urbanised, with Camberleymarker, Lightwatermarker, Deepcutmarker, Frimleymarker, Frimley Greenmarker and Mytchettmarker. The east of the district is less urbanised, and contains Surrey Heath's four civil parishes:

The district was formed on April 1, 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, as a merger of Frimley and Camberleymarker urban district, and Bagshot Rural District.
