Cannock Chase District

Cannock Chase District

Cannock Chase is a local government district in England. It covers a large 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 30% of the population, includes the parish of Bridgtown but the rest of Cannock is unparished.

Until the 2010 general election the parliamentary constituency of Cannock Chase consisted of Cannock Chase district plus the adjacent village of Huntington. From 2010 onwards the constituency has exactly the same boundaries as the district.

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