Cleckheaton, which was historically part of the larger Spenborough Urban District, can be defined using the current Cleckheaton Ward. The current Cleckheaton ward dates from 2004 and replaced an electoral ward dating from 1982; the 1982 ward was broadly similar to the current ward though covered a slightly smaller population. There is also a locality boundary for Cleckheaton which is smaller than the ward boundary.


Holmfirth is part of the Holme Valley Town Council area which also covers Honley and Brockholes; these areas are often thought of as not being part of the town of Holmfirth, though along with Meltham they are part of the HD9 postal district which carries the post town of Holmfirth. The ward of Holme Valley South covers Holmfirth and surrounding villages, whereas Holmfirth locality covers only the central part of Holmfirth without any of the surrounding villages.


Liversedge was historically part of the larger Spenborough Urban District. At present there is no overall profile available for Liversedge.
