St Erme Parish Council

Welcome to the St Erme Parish Council website.

St Erme is a rural parish which is located four miles north of the City of Truro and is bounded by St Allen, St Clement, Ladock, St Newlyn East and Probus parishes. The village has an active community and is set in a rural landscape, almost entirely of agricultural use.

Coronavirus (COVID 19) Information


St Erme Parish Council with the St Erme Emergency Plan Committee are working with Cornwall Council’s Community Link Officer and other volunteer sectors to support our local community.

As we are unable to meet the Parish Council will be holding a virtual meeting to put in place measures for a Continuity Plan and an Emergency Scheme of Delegation to be able to continue its business and focus on this health crisis and to be able to help local individuals and families.

It is heartening that local people have already come together and volunteered to help those in need, these kind people have been added to our existing Community Emergency Plan volunteers.

The Emergency Plan Committee has sent out leaflets to every household on how you can access help if required. The 'St Erme Community Larder' is able to help those in need with food parcels. A dedicated Facebook page has been set up to keep you up to date on government advice and any services available to you.

At the present time, the Parish Council is putting in place arrangements to work with Cornwall Council’s local Community Link Officer and teams across the authority.

If you know of any local residents who need support, or if there are any local issues related to the COVID-19 response, please let the Parish Council know. If we are unable to help locally we will forward the information through to the Community Link Officer, who will be best placed to organise a response from the relevant team at Cornwall Council and associated partner organisations.
