Restormel was a borough of Cornwallmarker, United Kingdommarker, one of the six administrative divisions that made up the county. Its council was based in St Austellmarker . Other towns included Newquaymarker.

The borough was named for Restormel Castlemarker. It was formed on April 1, 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, by a merger of the borough of St. Austell with Foweymarker, Newquay urban district and St Austell Rural District.

The motto of the borough, in Cornish, is "Ro an mor hag an tyr", meaning "From the sea and from the land." It recognises the Borough's connection with the sea (fishing and tourism) and the land (china clay and agriculture). St Austellmarker, the largest settlement in Cornwallmarker, does not have a Parish/Town Council.

The district was abolished as part of the 2009 structural changes to local government in England on 1 April 2009.


Restormel is twinned by oath, which can be viewed in the council offices in St Austellmarker, with Kreis Dithmarschenmarker. This used to be part of the borough council, however in recent years it has become a separate organisation.


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 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)
  • Carrickmarker – 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)
  • Restormel – 15,700 housing units (increase of 7,100).

Council investments

In March 2009 Restormel Borough Council was accused by the spending watchdog The Audit Commission of "negligence" for putting money into Icelandicmarker banks days before they went bust in October 2008.
