Senior Council members

2. The Chairman and Vice-Chairman

The Chairman’s role is similar to that of a mayor in other councils. It is a non-political role, working primarily to promote the county as a whole rather than the specific policies of the Council. The Vice-Chairman assists the Chairman with these duties. Both are elected (or re-elected) each year by the Council. The role and function of the Chairman is detailed in our Constitution.

The Chairman is happy to:

  • support activities within the County Council and beyond
  • be invited to present awards
  • officially open new buildings and projects
  • visit County Council teams in their local offices

If you have an event in the future, which you would like the Chairman to attend or visit, please contact:
