Welcome to St Mawgan-in-Pydar Parish Council
St Mawgan-in-Pydar Parish Council is able to award two types of small grants (The Local Government Act 1972 s137) to organisations whose work benefits the Parish of St Mawgan-in-Pydar and its residents.…more
The Parish Council is divided into two wards, St Mawgan Ward and Trenance Ward.
Whilst councillors are elected to the individual wards, in practice all 12 members serve the whole parish serving a population of approximately 1,176. For responsibilities of individual councillors refer to the Working Groups page.
The whole Council is usually elected every four years and therefore, following
the elections in May 2017, the next election will now be held in 2021.
The existence of the Parish Council ensures that the Parish’s views,
requirements and opinions are well represented to Cornwall Council and
in turn to central Government and statutory authorities. The Parish
Council is consulted on all Planning Applications concerning the parish
and forwards its recommendations accordingly. This ensures local knowledge
is taken into consideration when the final decision is made by Cornwall
Council, Planning Department.
Members of the press and public are welcome to attend meetings
of the Parish Council. Meetings of the Council take place on the second
Wednesday of each month. There is a 10 minute section for the public to
address members on any issue; although only items on the agenda may be discussed.
If you would like an item to appear on the agenda please contact the Clerk
at least one week prior to the meeting. The monthly meeting venue alternates
between Mawgan Porth Village Hall and St Mawgan Community Hall.
