Councillors work for the town and surrounding areas. They represent the distinct communities of Penzance, Newlyn, Paul, Mousehole, Heamoor and Gulval
We have 20 elected and unpaid members (Councillors) who represent the six wards in Penzance and the surrounding communities.
Councillors are elected to represent your views, address your concerns, and make decisions on the future of your town and village communities.
They represent the distinct communities of Penzance, Newlyn, Paul, Mousehole, Heamoor and Gulval. They also represent you on outside committees, partnerships, and community groups such as Penzance BID, Plastic Free Penzance, and Safer Penzance.
All Councillors are elected by you – residents of the parish.
All Councillors are governed by a Code of Conduct which outlines the rules, responsibilities, and proper behaviours expected of them.
They must also declare any personal and/or financial interests that might influence their decisions as an elected Councillor – a register of these interests is available on Cornwall Council’s website.
