|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 audited by the External Auditor. The Notice of the Conclusion of Audit may be seen 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 post office and shop in the toilet building has now opened and Anita looks forward to serving the community with a facility that has been lacking for far too long. It's been a long time coming because of various setbacks but the end result has been well worth it. The refurbishment of the disabled toilet to provide a unisex and disabled toilet is also complete and this facility is now also open. The Parish Council would like to thank all those who have assisted with this community project. There are too many to name (businesses and individuals) but you know who you are - thank you so much!!
WE HAVE NEW COUNCILLORS!!
I fact we have several!!
The Council is extremely grateful to those parishioners who have come forward for co-option to the Council. At the October meeting the Council will be up to its full strength of eleven Members for the first time since 2011 and we even have one in reserve - something that has never happened in at least the last twelve years. A full list of Councillors can be found found by clicking the appropriate link on the left of this page.
Neighbourhood Watch in the Parish has now been reintroduced in many areas.

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.
