Padstow
Town Council

Padstow Town Council has 12 Councillors, nine of which represent Padstow Ward and three representing Trevone. Each Councillor serves a term of four years. Every year the Council elects one Member as Town Mayor who is Chair of the Council and one Member as the Deputy Chair of the Council and Deputy Town Mayor.

The population of the parish is approximately 2,500, which includes nearby Trevone village. In the summer months this figure rises to around 5,500. Being the only harbour of a reasonable size on the North Cornish Coast Padstow has prospered from fishing, boat building and boat repairs. Today the main industry is tourism but Padstow has a sizeable fishing fleet and fishing is still a major part of the economy.
