St Austell with Fowey (pronounced "foy") was a municipal borough in Cornwall, United Kingdom. It was created in 1968 by a merger of the historic borough of Fowey and the much more populous St Austell urban district.[1] 50°20′17″N 4°47′38″W / 50.338°N 4.794°W / 50.338; -4.794Coordinates: 50°20′17″N 4°47′38″W / 50.338°N 4.794°W / 50.338; -4.794

In 1974 St Austell with Fowey was merged under the Local Government Act 1972 into the new Restormel district, becoming an unparished area until 1979. In 1979 Fowey became a civil parish.

In April 2009 four new parishes were formed to create St Austell town council, St Austell Bay civil parish, Carlyon civil parish and Pentewan Valley civil parish.[2]
