Welcome to the Corfe Mullen Town Council website. We hope you will find the website a valuable resource to find out more about what is happening within the Town Council.

We also have a Facebook group 'Corfe Mullen Town Council'  for you to keep up to date.  This is open to any member of the public to join, subject to Facebook rules and standards. We also ask those wanting to join three short questions so we can understand who is interested in Town Council business, and why, so we understand what might be useful for us to post.  You can request to join the group and answer the 3 questions here.

Following the recent Government announcement of a national lockdown effective from 00:01 on 5 January 2021, the Town Council Office will be closed to the public until further notice.  Contact by telephone and email can still be made between 9am and 2pm Monday to Friday and all queries will be dealt with remotely.

Telephone 01202 698600 between 9am and 2pm Monday to Friday or email office@corfemullen-tc.gov.uk.

Councillor surgery - currently suspended. 

Corfe Mullen is a large civil parish in the county of Dorset, situated on the north-western urban fringe of the Poole-Bournemouth conurbation. Although set on the edge of an urban area, Corfe Mullen is surrounded by the Green Belt and forms part of the rural district of East Dorset.

The name Corfe Mullen is from the Old English corf "a cutting or pass", and the Old French molin "a Mill" which refers to the old water mill on the River Stour, where the original village stood.

Although large, Corfe Mullen retains its village identity with four churches, three pubs, three schools, various shops and local businesses, a village hall, and a whole host of community and sports organisations which help to preserve the community spirit and sense of belonging.


The Town Council has secured excellent recreational facilities for the enjoyment of residents: 44 acres at Corfe Mullen Recreation Ground, plus over 11 acres at Springdale Road Open Space in the southern part of the village.  It also owns the Towers Way Amenity Area.
