St Mawgan in Pydar in CornwallThe 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 but following the formation of Cornwall Council the next election will now be in 2017.

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.

If you would like an item to appear on the agenda please contact the Clerk at least one week prior to the meeting.
