North Devon Council was created on 1 April 1974 to administer the North Devon District in the county of Devon in south west England. The council's main public office is located at Lynton House, Commercial Road, Barnstaple. The name of the council was changed in December 2007 when the word "District" was dropped from its title.

North Devon Council is elected every four years, with currently 43 councillors being elected on each occasion. In the first election held in 1973, the Independents took control of the council but in subsequent elections, control has changed several times, moving first to the Liberal Democrat in 1987 and then in 2007, the Conservative Party took control. After the 2011 elections, no overall party was in control and a coalition was made between the Liberal Democrats and independents. The council main office is in Barnstaple, with branch offices in Ilfracombe and South Molton, the latter having limited opening hours.
