Cresswell Parish Council
Cresswell is a small seaside village on the Northumberland coast. It is about four miles from Ashington and lies at the southern point of Druridge Bay. The village is dominated by the 15th Century Pele Tower which overlooks the village green. The Parish boundary stretches south beyond the mouth of the Lyne Burn and includes Cresswell Pond Nature reserve in the north.
The 2011 census said that there were about 206 residents in the village.
The Parish has a small Parish Council of seven Councillors which meets four times per year in the village hall which used to be a lifeboat house. Residents are welcome to attend these meetings which are advertised on the website and notice board.
The Parish Council meets to consider issues affecting the local community such as planning applications, highway matters and environment.
