The Local Government Act 1972 created the metropolitan borough on April 1, 1974, based on the former County Borough of Salford (including Pendleton, Langworthy, Broughton, Weaste, Ordsall and Seedley), the Municipal Borough of Eccles (including Monton, Winton and Barton-upon-Irwell), the Municipal Borough of Swinton and Pendlebury, the Irlam Urban District and the Worsley Urban District (including Walkden).

The metropolitan borough is divided into five formal districts: Salford, Eccles, Worsley, Irlam & Cadishead, and Swinton & Pendlebury, based on the areas of the predecessor districts. The borough is entirely unparished.
