    The Local Government Act of 1972 allowed the inception of the district. With the exception of Whitworth, the rest of Rosendale is not administered by a civil parish (more commonly known as unparished). The borough council of Rossendale is keen to the sustainable growth, clean environment, and an overall healthy constituency. The growing settlements transformed the area into market towns in the middle ages and has departed from being mainly forest area.
