Søndersø municipality ceased to exist as the result of Kommunalreformen ("The Municipality Reform" of 2007). It was merged with Otterup and Bogense municipalities to form the new Nordfyn municipality. This created a municipality with an area of 451 km2 and a total population of 28,655 (2005). The new municipality belongs to Region of Southern Denmark.
