Cornwall Council basics
Cornwall Council is the unitary authority responsible for local government for the whole of Cornwall.
It was formed in April 2009 from the amalgamation of the county council and the 6 district councils (Penwith, Kerrier, Carrick, Restormel, North Cornwall, Caradon).
The first elections for Cornwall Council were held on 4 June 2009. There are 123 Cornwall Councillors.
