Basildon Urban District

Basildon Urban District (from 1934 to 1955 Billericay Urban District) was a local government district in south Essex, England from 1934 to 1974.

The district was created in 1934 consisting of the following parishes (all from Billericay Rural District):[1]

It also gained 1,282 acres (5 km²) from Chelmsford Rural District and 1,627 acres (7 km²) from Orsett Rural District.

In 1937 all the parishes were abolished and used to create a Billericay parish which occupied the same area as the district.[2] In 1955 the district was renamed Basildon, still consisting of the Billericay parish.[3]
