|Welcome to Stithians Parish Council Website
|Stithians is a village and civil parish in what was the Kerrier district of Cornwall. It lies at the centre of a triangle bounded by Redruth, Helston and Falmouth and has a population of about 2000. The Parish includes the villages of Stithians and Longdowns as well as several hamlets such as Penhalvean, Goonlaze, Trembroath and Trethellan Water.
The ecclesiastical parish is St Stythians. There is a Parish Church and a Methodist Chapel in Stithians village. Links for their websites are shown in the links page of this website.
Parish Council meetings are held at 7pm on the third Tuesday of the month in the Stithians Centre, except August, when there is normally no meeting. Each meeting includes provision for a fifteen minute public session early in the agenda. You are welcome to attend and to participate in the public session, but are not allowed to intervene in the meeting once Public Participation is over.
There is, of course, no obligation to stay to the end of the meeting. You may leave whenever you wish. Come along, and see how your Parish Council works and what it does. You will be most welcome.
AUDIT OF 2015/16 ACCOUNTS
The 2015/ 16 Accounts have now been submitted to the External Auditor and, under the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 and the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014, notice is hereby given of the date of the commencement of the period during which they are available for public inspection. The relevant notice may be found by clicking here. The accounting Statement as submitted to the External Auditor may be found by clicking here. The final accounts as agreed by the Parish Council appear in "Financial Reports" on the right hand side of this page.
STITHIANS POST OFFICE AT YOUR CONVENIENCE
The Parish Council apologises for the temporary closure of the toilets but this is to enable their conversion to accommodate a post office facility and a small shop which, it is hoped, will open from 8am to 4.30pm six days a week but due to unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of the Parish Council, work has not progressed as quickly as had been hoped. It should now be completed in time for an opening sometime in September. There will be one unisex/disabled toilet.
Unfortunately, because the income has not matched her outgoings, the Post Mistress has reluctantly decided that she can no longer afford to operate the Outreach Post Office in the Stithians Centre and regrettably there will therefore be no Post Office facility in Stithians until the new one opens. The Parish Council is doing all it can to get this work done as soon as possible.

IS YOUR PROPERTY ADJACENT TO A WATERCOURSE?
There are almost 200 properties within the parish which are adjacent to watercourses and as such, the owners of those properties have certain responsibilities as riparian owners.
The Environment Agency have produced a booklet entitled Living on the Edge which outlines those responsibilities and a copy may be seen by clicking here.
