Welcome to the website of Altarnun Parish Council

The parish of Altarnun lies on the eastern side of Bodmin Moor and covering 15,014 acres is the largest in Cornwall. From rugged moorland in the west, to the unspoilt villages of Altarnun and Bolventor, which boasts the world renowned Jamaica Inn, onto picturesque hamlets and farmland in the east, the heart-warming diversity of rural Cornwall is reflected here. As an immensely proud community we endeavour to protect, preserve and improve our environment for the benefit of all. Recently this has included influencing the provision of sufficient affordable housing for local people, road safety and traffic management improvements, installing a public access defibrilator at Five Lanes and building public conveniences in Altarnun and a bus shelter in Bolventor.

Streetlighting -Switch off is coming!


November 2023
Streetlighting update

Changes to streetlighting

Cornwall Council is introducing a midnight to 5am switch off for many streetlights across Cornwall, to save carbon and costs.

 Those that are intended to be switched off have been carefully considered and Cornwall Council is now liaising with the police in the final check. 

The aim is to start in November by switching off streetlights between midnight and 5am in the first 10 parishes of Mylor, Perranarworthal, Ponsanooth, St Day, Gerrans, St Goran, St Just-in-Roseland, St Michael Caerhays, Tregony with Cuby, and Veryan. 

The roll out across the rest of Cornwall will continue over the following months.
