About The Parish
Quethiock Parish lies in the very rural heartland of South East Cornwall away from the main roads and tourist areas. It is situated approximately 7 miles from the towns of Liskeard, Callington and Saltash.
The seven members of the Parish Council represent less than 400 households making this one of the smallest parishes in Cornwall by population which is dispersed over a wide area.
Quethiock village is the main centre with a third of the population and there are 3 smaller villages, Blunts, Trehunist and Tilland.
The character of the Parish is based mainly on cattle and sheep farming and many of the farm buildings have been converted into housing so providing a scattering of small hamlets.
Parish Council Objectives
Firstly, to draw these diverse and scattered communities together and to liaise with the other existing organisations such as the Church, Chapels, School and Quethiock Pavilion to further community interests.
Secondly, to distribute information from outside the Parish from such sources as Cornwall Council, the Police, Social and Medical organisations and Charities which will be of value to the Community.
Thirdly, to provide a means to air issues and to discuss matters of importance and hopefully, within the constraints of our budget, and without bias, to fulfil the wishes of the majority. Examples might include planning applications, the provision of affordable homes, post office and transport facilities, new energy projects and footpath maintenance.
We actively support the Quethiock News and we hope through this website and with the interaction you can provide, we can further the interests and wellbeing of all within the Parish.
