If you are an accredited member of the media you can contact us with any enquiries on 01706 926002. You can also sign up for news releases and we'll email them to you.

Please note that we can only deal with enquiries from the media on this number - if you are a resident or business and have a query about a council service, see our council contacts page.

Filming permissions

We get many requests from production companies wanting permission to film in the Rochdale borough. If you would like to request permission to film on council land or property, please contact the press office and we'll get back to you as soon as we can, usually within 24 hours.

Media and publicity protocols

Our job is to protect and improve the reputation of the council and to keep people informed about decisions, services and activities that might affect them. Find out about communications and the law and media and publicity protocols.
