Cranbrook Town Council was created on the day of the local elections on 7 May 2015. The Town Council is the first tier of local government and the one closest to the community, serving Cranbrook’s residents, businesses and visitors. The Town Council operates at a level below the District and County Councils and can help on a number of local issues, such as providing allotments, bus shelters, community centres, play areas and grants to help local organisations. Please take a look around; we’d love to hear from you, so please get in touch by going to our contact us page.




Cranbrook Town Council is saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.

1926 – 2022
