Councillors are elected to represent an individual geographical unit on the council, known as a ward or – parish – in Marazion it is the entire parish (town).  Councillors are generally elected by the public every four years, but there are three Co-option spaces available on the Town Council now as Councillor Vincent gave his resignation to the Town Council in November 2020 and Cllrs Trudgen and Britten have stepped down at the recent election 2021.

Councillors have three main components to their work.

  • Decision making – Through meetings and attending committees with other elected members, councillors decide which activities to support, where money should be spent, what services should be delivered and what policies should be implemented.
  • Monitoring – Councillors make sure that their decisions lead to efficient and effective services by keeping an eye on how well things are working.
  • Getting involved locally – As local representatives, councillors have responsibilities towards their constituents and local organisations. These responsibilities and duties often depend on what the councillor wants to achieve and how much time is available.
