Chairman of the District of the Derbyshire Dales

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

The Civic Chairman wears a ceremonial chain of office at official engagements and generally represents the District Council at more than 50 functions throughout the year, organising special fund-raising events for nominated charities.

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

The 2021/22 Civic Chairman of the Derbyshire Dales is Councillor Steve Wain, following on from Councillor Helen Froggatt, whose civic year ended at the District Council's annual meeting on 27 May 2021. 

Councillor Graham Elliott has been appointed Civic Vice-Chairman of the District for the coming year.
