Swinton and Pendlebury

Swinton Neighbourhood Management Team on Facebook

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. For statistical information about these wards, see our neighbourhood statistics page.

Your Swinton and Pendlebury neighbourhood management team works with residents across Swinton and Pendlebury to make sure they feel:

  • informed about what is happening in their area
  • empowered to have a say in decisions being made
  • able to get involved to make improvements for themselves

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.

About the area

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 fourteen primary schools.

Community committee

Community committee meetings for Swinton and Pendlebury are held bi-monthly. Anyone wanting to find out what's going on or get involved is invited to attend. For information about the community committee including dates, times and venues, copies of the minutes or information on how to join the mailing list, please see the community committee page.

Community priorities

Each year, the neighbourhood management team works with the community committee to develop community priorities. These priorities are shared with other agencies working in the neighbourhood and determine the work of the neighbourhood team and the community committee. For further information, please see the community priorities page.
