Swinton and Pendlebury
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.
