Cornwall Council is a unitary authority. It was created on 1 April 2009 by merging Cornwall County Council and the six borough and district councils in Cornwall - Caradon, Carrick, Kerrier, North Cornwall, Restormel and Penwith.

The Council has a revenue budget of over £1bn and a £1.2bn capital/investment programme. Our 123 councillors represent the 560,000+ residents dispersed across the largest rural unitary Council in England - by any measure the Council is one of the largest local authorities in England.

Our Cabinet has committed to deliver on five key priorities: 

  • Healthy Cornwall
  • Homes for Cornwall
  • Green and prosperous Cornwall
  • Connecting Cornwall
  • Democratic Cornwall

Having a single council gives Cornwall a strong and united voice when dealing with national government, regional agencies and partner organisations. This has meant that Cornwall was the first rural authority to agree a Devolution Deal with the Government. The Cornwall Devolution Deal outlines the powers that will be devolved to Cornwall for transport, energy, health and social care, and heritage.

With a competitive employee reward package that attracts, retains and motivates our employees, open and superb community spirit, it is also a great place to live.
