This is an extraordinary time, and the situation is changing hour by hour. We have created a new COVID-19  section on the Congleton Town Council website, which we will update regularly to keep you up to date

The Town Council has needed to adapt its working environment to protect the public and staff. Normal routines have changed. We will do our best to still answer all your calls and emails. Our priority will be doing all we can to protect and help our community through this difficult time. A local facebook group, is also worth checking Congleton Coronavirus (COVID-19 Community Group).

Congleton is a market town with a population of around 26,900 located in south east Cheshire. The town is about half way between Manchester and Stoke and is part of the beautiful Cheshire Peak District. Congleton is well known for its festivals, flowers, ribbons, beers and bears! It has over 150 local organisations and groups, a bustling shopping centre, its own theatre, fantastic park and paddling pool. The town had been entered in the 2020 National Finals of Congleton in Bloom and look forward to now representing the region in 2021. 


A council for the people

Congleton Town Council was created in 1980 to represent the people of Congleton town. 20 Councillors, representing two wards, are elected every four years (next election May 2023) to serve on the Council.
