Election of the Mayor
The Mayor of Biggleswade is elected by their fellow Councillors at the Annual Statutory Meeting of the Council in May each year.
The ‘Mayor-making’ is at the beginning of the meeting and the new Mayor takes over from their predecessor immediately. The meeting then sets up the democratic structure of the Council for the following year – committees and representation on outside bodies.
The Mayor’s role is to chair Council meetings in accordance with Standing Orders and conduct the meeting in a fair and impartial manner. The Mayor also represents Biggleswade at civic events and local and community events during the year.
