Annual Town Meeting

The Annual Town Meeting is a chance to meet your Councillors and get an overview of our work from the last year. This includes any issues as well as projects, activities, and initiatives that we have been supporting. You also have the chance to raise matters with the Council and ask questions.

All electors in the Parish of Penzance are encouraged to attend the meeting – this includes everyone over the age of 18 who is registered to vote and is resident in Penzance, Newlyn, Paul, Mousehole, Heamoor, or Gulval.

The town belongs to everyone and we should all have a voice in its future!
