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
