The Council of 11 members meet on the 2nd Thursday of 10 months (not August or December) to hear the public and to transact essential business.
All parish meetings are held in Downderry Methodist Church at 7.30 pm.

There are three electoral wards, unusual for rural parishes in Caradon, but necessary because of the different nature of the wards. The inequality of representation is well known but the present arrangement has the advantage that no single ward can automatically win an open vote in council. Neither is there a single member ward !

Currently the Parish has a number of Projects in hand.
  1. A project to develop a walkway around the so called Rock’s Nose Corner between Downderry & Seaton where there is a constant danger to pedestrians. It is hoped to develop a micropark with items of interest within which a path will feature.
  2. A leisure facility is planned for TanverYate, a small almost flat field which the parish has purchased. As of December 2003 planning permission has been conditionally granted. The Parish will now seek grants to develop the site for football and perhaps tennis and bowls
  3. The Parish also purchased the Axe field and is contemplating simple leisure activities here. Again grant funding is being sought.
