What We Do

Recreation GroundCorfe Mullen Town Council aims to represent the interests of the residents of the village as a whole and to preserve the environment for the enjoyment of the villagers, visitors and future generations. We offer a range of services and also work in partnership with other councils and organisations in the village.

The Council is always keen to ensure that its priorities and initiatives reflect the wishes of the electorate: all meetings are open to the public and councillors may be contacted if you have any ideas for Corfe Mullen or an issue which we can help with. Or pop in to the Help & Information Centre with your suggestions.

The Town Council is able to make a number of small grants to local charities and organisations, or those working in the area. In addition, the Town Council supports the Community Youth Centre following the closure of the Dorset County Council Youth & Community Centre.

Grant applications are invited each year.  All grant applications must be received by 30 September for grants to be awarded by 30 November. 

The Grant Policy 2022 can be found by clicking on the link.  Please click on the following link to access the Application Form.  

We also ask that you complete an End of Grant Report

 Cemetery Information



The Town Council provides and maintains some street lighting, usually where local residents have requested additional lighting over and above that provided by the County Council.
The Town Council provided the new village signs welcoming visitors to Corfe Mullen. The images on the Town Council crest depict the old church, the old mill and a Roman soldier, which we think represents the tradition and history of the village rather well.
In addition we regularly pursue action from Dorset Council  on a range of issues of concern, such as litter, yellow lines, speeding traffic, highway improvements and maintenance, hedges and trees, footpaths and rights of way, etc.  in 2018, the Town Council entered into an agency agreement with Dorset County Council (now carried forward to the new Dorset Council) enabling the Town Council to fund, contribute to, or undertake, minor highway improvements.
