Sister cities of Restormel
The borough was named after Restormel Castle. It was formed on 1 April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, by a merger of the borough of St. Austell with Fowey, Newquay urban district and St Austell Rural District. The name Restormel comes from the Cornish, meaning the king's tower hill.
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 Austell, the largest settlement in Cornwall, 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.
