St Mellion is located between Callington and Saltash in the east of Cornwall, between the Lynher and Tamar Rivers, and partly within the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is one of the smallest parishes in Cornwall with a population of less than 408 and an area of 2,985 acres.
The parish economy is mainly agricultural although it is also home to St Mellion International Resort, an extensive golfing and leisure venue with four star accommodation and hospitality facilities.
St Mellion has a primary school, a church, a methodist chapel and a village pub called the Coryton Arms.
The Parish Council has six Councillors (including a Chair and Vice Chair) plus a Parish Clerk. Ordinary meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month (except August) at 7pm in the Church Hall, St Mellion.
There is also an annual meeting in May which is held straight after the 'Annual Meeting of Parish Electors' and directly before the Parish Council's ordinary meeting for that month.
In addition to these set meetings, the Parish Council occasionally holds extraordinary meetings and 'public meetings', for example, to hear parishioner views on large, local planning applications.
All of these meetings are held in public with parishioners and other interested parties encouraged to attend. Notices, agendas and minutes are posted on the two notice boards in St Mellion village (one by the phone box, one in The Glebe) as well as being published on this website (on the Meetings page).
If you have any enquiries about Parish Council matters, please contact the Clerk using the details at the foot of this page. Please note that standard ‘office hours’ are afternoons on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Thank you for visiting.
Further to the recent survey carried out in St Mellion and Pillaton parishes, a final report has been published on Cornwall Council’s website at the link below. If you would like further information, please contact the Clerk using the ‘Enquiries’ form on this website.
