Mayor and Deputy Mayor

Mayor and Deputy Mayor

The office dates back centuries to a time when Mayors had much wider authority. The position is now a civic one with the exception of chairing Council meetings.

The importance of the position however continues to be widely recognised. It remains the highest office that the citizens of the town, through their elected representatives, can confer.

The role of Town Mayor is distinct from that of Councillor and the Mayor carries out the role in a non-political manner. Each Mayor has their own approach, establishing their priorities and interests.
