Mabe Parish lies on a granite hillside, overlooking Falmouth Bay and the Carrick Roads, in West Cornwall. We are a friendly, welcoming community of just over 2000 residents, most of whom live in the village of Mabe Burnthouse, which has a thriving village primary school, shop, post office, pub and hairdresser’s. The remainder live in farms and outlying hamlets such as Eathorne, Trevone, Halvasso and Trenoweth.
We are proud to be one of the smallest parishes in the UK to boast two universities – the recently developed Combined Universities’ Campus lies to the east, and houses both Falmouth and Exeter universities.
Mabe is also proud of its industrial heritage and once had several working quarries extracting high quality granite, which was transported far and wide for construction projects such as Waterloo Bridge.

Community Groups Meeting
undertaking a community group meeting on 5th October 2017 at 8pm in
the MYCP Community Hall to which all groups active in the parish are being
invited. We are looking to discuss the
common issues that all local groups appear to be facing; how to deal with
decreasing volunteer numbers, increasing running costs and greater public
service expectations. We would like it
if a member of your group (or more) would be able to come along to join in our
discussion on how a more combined & community led approach might be used to
help everyone out.
We look forward to seeing you there.
|Mabe Traffic Feasibility Study|
Towards the end of 2013 the parish council commissioned Cormac to prepare a traffic feasibility study. Working with Cornwall Council, Cormac and local residents, the parish council aims to introduce a series of measures aimed at reducing traffic volume and speed and improving pedestrian safety.
