Shaw and Crompton district is made up of the Wards of Shaw and Crompton. It includes a vibrant town centre with many local amenities and shops.
Shaw and Crompton lies in the valley of the River Beal in the Pennine foothills. Until the middle of the 19th Century, the township was made up of scattered hill farms. Then the industrial revolution changed the valley landscape with red brick cotton mills.
How decisions about your neighbourhood are made
All the elected members for the Shaw and Crompton District Wards regularly come together as the District Executive to discuss and make decisions about things that affect local people.
The District Executive sets the local priorities in the District Plan, and works closely with services and partners to achieve these priorities.
Its led by the District Executive Chair, who is supported by the Vice Chair. The Chair and Vice Chair champion the interests of the district at a borough-wide level and support many important events and initiatives throughout the district.
