Cornwall Council recycling survey goes live - please help us promote it!

Consultation is now taking place for the proposed changes to the Council's waste collection service in 2020. Residents can have their say to help shape the service they provide in the future, and inform how they can help everyone recycle more for Cornwall.


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.
