Carrick was a local government district in Cornwallmarker, Englandmarker, United Kingdommarker. Its council was based in Truromarker.

The main centres of population, industry and commerce were the city of Truromarker and the towns of Falmouthmarker/Penrynmarker.

The district was created under the Local Government Act 1972, on 1 April 1974 by the merger of the municipal boroughs of Truromarker, Falmouthmarker and Penrynmarker, and the Truro Rural District.

It was named after the Carrick Roadsmarker, an inlet near Falmouth that the rivers Percuil, Penryn and Falmarker drain into. The district was abolished as part of the 2009 structural changes to local government in England on 1 April.


On 9th January 2008 the 'Regional Spatial Strategy for the South West' (RSS) announced plans to massively increase house-building in Cornwall stating that almost 70,000 new homes would be built by 2026. The findings of the 'Examination in Public' into the RSS, were produced by the unelected South West Regional Assembly. The original Draft RSS was published in 2006 and the new figures show another 53% increase. Figures for the new plans included:
  • Caradonmarker – 6,500 housing units (an increase of 700 on the original document)
  • Carrick – 10,900 housing units (increase of 900)
  • Kerriermarker – 14,400 housing units (increase of 6,200)
  • North Cornwallmarker – 13,400 housing units ( increase of 5,800)
  • Penwithmarker – 7,800 housing units (increase of 3,000)
  • Restormelmarker – 15,700 housing units (increase of 7,100).

There has been much concern in Cornwall regarding these proposals and Dick Cole, the leader of the Cornish political party Mebyon Kernow, has issued a statement saying that local housing strategy should be determined by democratically elected Cornish politicians.
