Despite its proximity to Bradford, its Bradford postal address and its mostly Bradford dial code (most of the village uses the 01274 phone number, but part uses the 0113 Leeds prefix), Birkenshaw forms part of Kirklees Metropolitan Borough. It is home to the headquarters of the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.
There are two schools in the village; Birkenshaw Primary School and BBG Academy as well as are a church and two playgrounds.
