Chairman of the District of the Derbyshire Dales

A civic role, the Chairman of the District of the Derbyshire Dales is elected at the annual meeting of the council and serves for a civic year.

The Chairman of the District of the Derbyshire Dales wears a ceremonial chain of office at official engagements and generally represents the District Council at around 100 functions throughout the year, organising special fund-raising events for nominated charities.

The role of Chairman of the District of the Derbyshire Dales is different from that of Chairman of the District Council, which is a more strategic leadership role.

The 2017/18 Chairman of the District of the Derbyshire Dales is Councillor Steve Flitter, following on from Councillor Tom Donnelly, whose civic year ended at the District Council's annual meeting on 18 May 2017. Read this article about Councillor Flitter's aims for his year in office.

Councillor Jean Monks has been appointed Vice-Chairman of the District for the coming year.
