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.

To all in Looe.
We just had the best event ever. I drive the truck and have done nearly 100 gigs and Looe knocked the spots off everywhere else. Well done to everyone, the council, the locals, the tea rooms that fed us, the harbour master that looked like Santa and made us welcome and finally the Police that were invaluable and totally professional. Best ever guys, well done.
Merry Christmas all.

SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT
Due to numerous queries from members of the public regarding the East Looe Town Trust article in the Community News (December 2014 and January 2015) relating to the Guildhall Ladies Toilet Block, we would like to set the record straight.
Looe Town Council have just signed a new lease for our current premises which secures income for East Looe Town Trust until 31st March 2017.
Looe Town Council have NOT made any decision regarding alternative Council office accommodation and are only in the very early stages of discussions with Cornwall Council regarding the One Stop Shop and Library building, no formal offer has been made by either party.
At this stage Looe Town Council have no intention of relocating the Tourist Information Centre to an alternative building so the rental income for East Looe Town Trust remains secure for the foreseeable future.
