Coulsdon and Purley Urban District was a local government district in north east Surreymarker from 1915 to 1965.

It was formed in 1915 from part of the abolished Croydon Rural Districtmarker. It consisted of the main settlements of Coulsdonmarker and Purleymarker, both in the parish of Coulsdon, along with the parish of Sandersteadmarker and (from 1933) Farleighmarker.

In 1965, despite vigorous opposition from residents, it was abolished and the area became part of the London Borough of Croydonmarker. In 1969 the Greater London, Kent and Surrey Order 1968 transferred Farleigh back to Surrey to form part of the Godstone Rural District.

The coat of arms were granted on 14 May 1952.
