Cannock Chase (district)


Cannock Chase (district)

Cannock Chase is a local government district in England. It covers part of Cannock Chase forest and the towns of Cannock, Rugeley and Hednesford.

There are several parish and town councils in the district:
* Rugeley
* Hednesford
* Brereton and Ravenhill
* Bridgtown
* Brindley Heath
* Cannock Wood
* Heath Hayes and Wimblebury
* Norton Canes

Cannock, which covers around one third of the population, is unparished.

The district, together with the adjacent village of Huntington, forms the parliamentary constituency of Cannock Chase. As of 2008, the Member of Parliament is Dr Tony Wright. The constituency boundary will be aligned exactly with the district boundary for the next general election.

The district was formed on 1 April 1974 by the merger of Cannock and Rugeley urban districts, and Brindley Heath from Lichfield Rural District.
