Cranage Parish Council was one of the first councils in Cheshire to be awarded quality status. Quality status is awarded only if several stringent standards in areas of management, financial control, communication etc. are achieved and maintained.
The Parish Council strives to maintain and improve Cranage for residents and visitors alike. Members of the public are very welcome to sit in and to contribute to the public forum at the start of each meeting. The meetings usually start at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.
An annual parish meeting takes place, usually in March or April, at which a speaker is invited to give a presentation on a current topic of interest. Cranage residents have the opportunity to discuss with the council any matters that concern them.
In addition to the website, a newsletter is published during the year, it describes developments, events and news. One issue every year is delivered to every house in the village and the other issues are displayed on the notice boards and on the website.
The notice boards also show copies of the minutes from the previous meeting and an agenda for the next, they are situated outside the Village Hall, on Needham Drive, on Northwich Road next to the post box, on Middlewich Road near the crossroads and on Crescent Road next to the post box.
