History[edit | edit source]

Svedala Municipality is a municipality in Skåne County in southern Sweden, just southeast of Malmö. Its seat is located in the town of Svedala.
The present municipality is the result of a series of mergings, carried out in 1952, 1967, 1974 and 1977. Svedala was the last municipality to be completed during the local government reform of the 1970s. There had been considerations of adding the whole or parts of the territory to Malmö Municipality.
