Looe Town Council

Looe is the stunningly beautiful fishing port on the south coast of Cornwall, part of Caradon District and within easy travelling distance of Plymouth and the historic market town of Liskeard.

The Looe Town Council has fifteen elected members from all areas of Looe, which is now warded, the wards being: East Looe and St Martins and West Looe, Lansallos and Lanteglos. Members of the public will generally make enquiries of the Councillor they know or with whom they feel most comfortable.

Councillors are elected on a four yearly cycle, in May of the election year, and the Mayor from among, and by, the Councillors annually.

The Councillors are listed under the members section and they are happy to talk, listen and give advice on matters appertaining to Looe. Contact should be made through the Clerk to the Council between 9am – 3pm daily Monday to Friday.

The Council owns the Mariners and Fishermens Memorial Garden adjacent to the Health Centre and 2 Polkirt Arcade and we lease the Health Centre Patients Car Park.

We are also responsible for the Public Conveniences in Looe and for the Bowling Club/Putting Green at Hannafore.

The Council also runs the Tourist Information Centre. We operate from Looe Guildhall, located in East Looe and owned by East Looe Town Trust.
