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 currently owns no properties but leases the Health Centre patients car park. The Council also runs the self-funding Tourist Information Centre. We operate from Looe Guildhall, located in East Looe and owned by East Looe Town Trust.
Public Information – Mariners and Fishermans Garden
Looe Town Council are in the process of re-organising and cleaning up this garden area.
We have redesigned the garden to give meaning to its name and will be installing a large anchor and piece of engraved granite (kindly donated by Looe Harbour Commission) to create a focal point for people to remember all Mariners and Fishermen of Looe as intended by ex-Mayor, Ron Overd.
It will also be a lovely place to sit and watch the boats on the river, it will reduce the anti-social activities and be a garden for the town to be proud of.
Formal opening ceremony, conducted by Mayor Cllr David Bryan and Mrs Pat Overd, which will be advertised as soon as we know the time and date, please come and join us.
Our grateful thanks to Dave Darby for undertaking this project on our behalf.
Mrs Anne Frith
Clerk to Looe Town Council
Neighbourhood Plan Discussions
Update on St Martins Road, Looe – 1st October 2013
St Martins Road continues to operate on two way traffic under traffic light control. This arrangement is being monitored closely by CORMAC to minimise disruption. To date, the arrangement has worked well.
There has been a delay in the Health & Safety Executive’s investigations at the site of the landslip. They were originally due to return to the site in September, but we have been informed that they have now delayed their return until October. This may have implications for the timescale for the further works required to allow the road to return to full two-way operation.
The Council has carried out a feasibility study into the options available for the further works to St Martins Road. This is now being considered. The Council’s objective is to achieve a permanent solution to the highway that minimises disruption. We will continue to keep the Town Council, local Members and the community informed as matters progress.
