The Parish Council is an elected local authority. They are the first tier of local government and play a vital role in engaging with local people and helping to shape their communities.
The council raises funds annually in the form of a precept which is collected as part of the Council Tax. This money is used to help maintain parish infrastructure and provide services not otherwise provided by Cornwall Council and Central Government. Details of all expenditure can be found on the Finance pages.
The Parish Council usually meets on the third Monday of every month at 7:30pm in the Parish Hall.
Members of the public are welcome to attend any of these monthly meetings. There is a ‘Public Session’ in the first half of the meeting, at which members of the public are welcome to ask questions or present information to the councillors.
In May of each year an Annual Parish Meeting takes place, at which representatives of local groups and organisations are invited to give a report of their activities in the preceding twelve months. The 2022 Annual Parish Meeting will be held on 30th May.
The agenda for each meeting is posted on all the local noticeboards and on this website a week prior to the meeting taking place. The minutes along with policy and procedures are also published on the website.
