Billinge (from 1927 Billinge and Winstanley) was, from 1894 to 1974, a local government district in the administrative county of Lancashire, England.

The Billinge urban district was created in 1894 by the Local Government Act 1894, consisting of the parishes of Billinge Chapel End, Billinge Higher End and Winstanley. The parishes were abolished in 1924 and the district was renamed Billinge and Winstanley on 5 May 1927.

The urban district was abolished in 1974 by the Local Government Act 1972, with Billinge made part of the Metropolitan Borough of St Helens in Merseyside and most of the rest of the urban district was incorporated into the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan in Greater Manchester.
