The Lord Mayor is elected each year from the 39 city councillors, and is supported by a Deputy Lord Mayor. The Lord Mayor is non political during their year of office. The Deputy Lord Mayor remains politically active.

The Lord Mayor and their Deputy attend more than 600 functions and civic events during the year. These events:

  • promote the city through business and community activities
  • support local charities and community organisations
