Here you can find information about your Swinton and Pendlebury neighbourhood management team, the Swinton and Pendlebury area and some ideas on how you can get involved in your community.
The area is made up of three wards, Swinton South, Swinton North, and Pendlebury.
Your Swinton and Pendlebury neighbourhood management team works with residents across Swinton and Pendlebury to make sure they feel:
The team work closely with local partners such as the neighbourhood policing team, housing agencies, local businesses and youth providers to ensure that neighbourhood issues are dealt with in the most effective way. The team also supports the Swinton and Pendlebury community committee, which brings together local residents, councillors and community groups to identify neighbourhood priorities and allocate local budgets.
Swinton town centre is the city's administrative centre, both Salford City Council and the police have their headquarters based there. This is also where you will find Swinton Square Shopping Centre and the Swinton Gateway Centre, home to the towns library and children's centre.
In the Pendlebury ward, is the beautiful Clifton Country Park which stretches down to the Irwell Valley. Swinton is also home to the Green Flag Victoria Park, the only Victorian themed park in Salford with a bandstand. There are several other parks in Swinton and Pendlebury including Moorside Park, Campbell Road Playing Fields and Wardley Park.
Swinton and Pendlebury is dissected by three major roads - the A580 East Lancashire Road, the A6 and the A666, which means that links to Manchester and the surrounding areas are good. There are also good rail links to Manchester.
There are three high schools and 14 primary schools.
Swinton and Pendlebury hold quarterly community network events. These are informal events, free for anyone to attend. They are an opportunity for local residents, voluntary and community sector groups, local businesses, ward councillors and partner agencies to get together to share information and good practice. The events are often themed around issues relevant to the local community. To find out when your next network meeting is taking place, please see the get involved page.
