The Parish is nearly the lowest level of local government, originally formed at a time when there was little difference, to the local people, between the Church and the State. A parish like Churchstow usually formed around a village or other small community and used to be centred around the Parish Church. Today Church and State have separated but the same area is now represented as a local authority by the Churchstow Parish Council.
Parish Councils have few major rights and/or obligations and are responsible to the higher authorities above them. They do however manage local amenities and have a watching brief on local issues and their opinion is noted by those higher authorities in matters concerning them, such as local planning issues. The Parish of Churchstow and its council is responsible to the Council of the District of South Hams and that of the County of Devon in which it is located.
The Parish Council has adopted the West Devon Code of Conduct.
