All powers are to be returned to Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, three years after government intervention.
Communities secretary, James Brokenshire, has confirmed that control of all services, including children's social care, will be returned to the council on Monday.
The Government had appointed commissioners to oversee the council after it was revealed that 'significant failings' at the authority had contributed to child sexual exploitation in Rotherham.
Mr Brokenshire said: 'I am pleased that strong progress has now been made at the council with the support of the commissioners.
'The return of all powers to Rotherham council is not a decision that I take lightly, but I am satisfied that the council has learnt the lessons of the past and is now able to provide the services its residents deserve and expect.'
Chief executive of the council, Sharon Kemp, said: 'Over the past four years there have been significant changes here at the council, including changes across the leadership.
'Today’s announcement is pleasing however we continue to focus on constantly improving outcomes for all our residents and stakeholders.
The council must commission an independent progress review of delivery 18 February 2019.
