Welcome to Truro City Council

The bustling Cathedral City of Truro is the centre for administration, commerce and tourism for the County of Cornwall. Truro has developed close to the Truro River and, with good road and rail links, is within easy reach of almost every part of Cornwall.

The City Council carries out a number of functions in the City. Its largest department manages the award winning parks and gardens, the horticultural displays in the City centre, the public cemetery grounds and allotments. This department also manages the public conveniences, much of the City Centre street furniture and carries out road and pavement weeding in the wider City. There is also a community development function.

 

This website provides information about the decisions and governance of the Council. The links below direct you to other Council websites; VisitTruro for information and events, Truro Uncovered for historical information, and the Truro & Kenwyn Neighbourhood Plan.  

If you require information or previous council minutes please contact the office using the contact information on this site.

The City Council manages the VisitTruro team which provides tourist information from its busy shop in Boscawen Street; via telephone, email and social media.

Visit Truro

It also has a marketing function for the City including the production of the very successful Truro Guide widely distributed in the City, the annual accommodation guide and the website.

We have very close ties with Truro Business Improvement District (Truro BID) and Visit Cornwall for whom we provide a contact centre function.
