Police Surgeries with PCSO Lloyd Paynter

Beginning 9th March 2016, PCSO Lloyd Paynter & members of the Neighbourhood Policing Team will be holding regular Surgeries from 2.30pm until 4.30pm in Fowey Town Hall Office.  They are hoping these Surgeries will help to re-assure the Community particularly in view of the current high level of anti-social behaviour and criminal damage.  If you have any concerns please visit them on the following dates, which fall on the second Wednesday of each month:  22nd June, 13th July and 10th August.

Welcome to Fowey Town Council Website

Welcome to the Ancient Town and Port of Fowey which is situated on the south coast of Cornwall, at the mouth of the Fowey river about 20 miles west of Plymouth, and 5 miles east of St Austell.

With a population of around 1800, which swells during the summer months accommodating visitors, Fowey is a busy port exporting china clay all year round and welcoming cruise liners during the tourist season, as well as being a popular yachting harbour. In May the town is the backdrop for the Fowey Festival of Words and Music and in June you are invited to sample the excellent, locally grown mussels during the Fowey River Big Gig & BBQ (formerly the Mussel Fest).  August heralds Fowey Royal Regatta which is always held in the third week of August and our Christmas Market weekend, held at the beginning of December, grows in popularity year on year.

In local government terms, Fowey is a civil parish with a town council and a Mayor. Besides the town, the parish includes the coastal area between the mouth of the River Fowey and St Austell Bay, including Gribben Head and the smaller settlements of Menabilly, Polkerris, Polmear and Newtown.

The parish of Fowey lies within the St Austell and Newquay constituency of the United Kingdom Parliament, and the South West England constituency of the European Parliament.

Town Quay Parking

The Town Council has been approached by a film company working on a production of School Reunion by Rosamund Pilcher and who will be shooting some scenes on the Town Quay and in the Royal British Legion and Haverners. Clearly this will be of great benefit to the town in general and a great boost for tourism but will cause some disruption to the Pay & Display parking on the quay. Please be aware that there will be managed parking available from midnight on Sunday 30th October but no parking at all on Monday 31st October or Tuesday 1st November until approximately 7pm.
