PUBLIC FOOTPATHS

There have been considerable increases in the use of the Public Rights of Way Network and the South West Coast Path due to members of the public in the most part using these legitimately to exercise.  Whilst currently this is permitted, the rules for social distancing still apply.  Many of the PRoW in Cornwall are very narrow and do not allow sufficient passing space to allow users to adhere to ‘social distancing’ and we have been made aware of specific issues connected with this. It is critically important that you observe social distancing whenever you are away from your home base and if a PRoW does not allow it then you should turn back if you meet somebody on the path. 

On a more serious note, there have been witnessed first-hand reports of the use of PRoW and the SWCP as an opportunity to socialise.  This appears to be especially prevalent on the SWCP and not surprisingly especially where there is beach access.  If you become aware of ‘hotspots’ we would ask that you contact your local PCSO/Police Liaison Officer or the Town Clerk to make them aware of this so that, if they think it necessary, they can take action to discourage this.

Permit Parking The Town Council now has a limited number of permit parking spaces at Squires Field. Priority for allocation will be for businesses in the parish and people on the Fowey Electoral Register. The cost will be £1 per day, plus vat, payable annually in advance. The income generated will be used towards the day to day running costs of the whole of the Squires Field complex, which are significant. The devolution of assets from Cornwall Council, whilst welcome in many ways, is placing a significant burden on the council tax payers of Fowey and FTC  hopes that levying this small charge will go some way to offsetting this and at the same time support our local businesses and residents by offering guaranteed parking when, as we all know, it is at a premium throughout the town, particularly in the summer months. 

Any qualifying person wishing to secure a space should contact the Town Clerk at sallyvincent957@btinternet.com

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.  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.
