Council Services

Lord Mayor of Norwich

From 1403 until 1835, Norwich had the distinction of being able to elect one mayor and two sheriff's annually. This 432 year old privilege was abolished by the municipal Reform Act, which decreed only one sheriff could be elected from 1835 onwards. In 1909 the 506 year old status of mayor was elevated to Lord Mayor by King Edward VII.

Norwich is one of only 25 UK cities to appoint a Lord Mayor. The appointment is made annually. Nominations can only be received from serving Norwich city councillors. Members of the majority political group on the council make the decision as to who is to become Lord Mayor. The role is primarily ceremonial and apolitical.

Lord Mayor of Norwich

The Lord Mayor of Norwich for 2011-12 is Councillor Jenny Lay.
