Huyton with Roby Urban District was a local government district in Lancashire, England from 1894 to 1974.[1] It consisted of the civil parish of Huyton with Roby which comprised the settlements of Huyton and Roby.[2] It replaced the Huyton with Roby urban sanitary district.

In 1974 it was abolished and its former area was transferred to Merseyside [3] to be combined with that of Kirkby Urban District, Prescot Urban District, parts of Whiston Rural District and parts of West Lancashire Rural District to form the present-day Metropolitan Borough of Knowsley.
