New Forest is a local government district in Hampshire, England. It is named after the New Forest.

It was created on 1 April 1974, and was a merger of the borough of Lymington, New Forest Rural District and part of Ringwood and Fordingbridge Rural District.

The district is one of the most populated in England not to be a unitary authority. It was recommended by the Banham Commission to become one in 1995, but this case was vetoed by the government of the day.
