|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.
STITHIANS POST OFFICE
Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of both the Parish Council and Cornwall Councillor John Thomas, the post office facilities in the village shop have now closed.
The good news is that an "outreach" post office will, as soon as is possible, be set up. It is hoped that it will be in the Stithians Centre but this is currently subject to negotiations between the Management Committee and the Post Office Service and, although this will mean a break in service, it is hoped that this period without any post office facilities will be kept to a minimum.
The outreach facility will be run by the Postmaster from Ponsanooth and will operate between 9am and 1pm on Tuesdays and between 1pm and 3pm on two other days yet to be determined. All the facilities previously available will be offered with the exception of car tax.
As soon as there is any more definite news, more information will appear here.

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.
