Die Reorganisation der Grenzen und der Kompetenzen der lokalen Behörden führte 1974 zur Bildung des Metropolitan Borough. Fusioniert wurden dabei der County Borough Rotherham, die Urban Districts Maltby, Rawmarsh, Swinton und Wath-upon-Dearne sowie der Rural District Kiveton Park. Diese Gebietskörperschaften gehörten zuvor zur Grafschaft West Riding of Yorkshire.

1986 wurde Rotherham faktisch eine Unitary Authority, als die Zentralregierung die übergeordnete Verwaltung der Grafschaft auflöste. Rotherham blieb für zeremonielle Zwecke Teil von South Yorkshire, wie auch für einzelne übergeordnete Aufgaben wie Polizei, Feuerwehr und öffentlicher Verkehr.
