Serge Lepeltier (born 12 October 1953 in Le Veurdre, Allier) is a French politician.

He studied at École des Hautes Études Commerciales.

He was mayor of Bourges in 1995 and again in 2001. He was elected senator of the Cher département on 27 September 1998.

He won the municipal elections in Bourges in 1995 over the communist candidate.

He briefly acted as President of the Rally for the Republic in 2002 after Michèle Alliot-Marie was nominated as Minister of Defence, and just before the Party was officially dissolved within the Union for a Popular Movement.

On 31 March 2004, Jean-Pierre Raffarin's government announced a reshuffle because of the massive losses in the French regional elections. Serge Lepeltier became Minister of the Environment,[1] while Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin was dismissed.

In 2005 Serge Lepeltier joined the Radical Party.
