Welcome to the Mayor's Office

Council Crest

As first citizen, the Mayor of Castlereagh is a representative for all the residents of the Borough and is open to invitations to events from all sections of the community.

The Mayoral Support Officer is responsible for administering the diary engagements for the Mayor and Deputy Mayor, organising visits to the Civic Offices and fundraising events for the Mayor’s Official Charity.

The Mayor will usually attend around 300 engagements during his term in office and therefore it is advisable to give as much notice as possible prior to the date of the event.

Upon acceptance of an invitation, the mayoral support officer will issue briefing notes for completion and return prior to the event.


  • The Mayor should be addressed as Mr Mayor or Madam Mayor.
  • Letters should be addresses as Dear Mr Mayor or Dear Madam Mayor
  • When a male Mayor is in office, then his spouse/partner is known as “Mayoress”.
  • When a female Mayor is in office, then her spouse/partner is known as “Mayor’s Consort”

In the absence of the Mayor, the Deputy Mayor is entitled to the right of precedence within the Borough and similar arrangements should be put in place if the Deputy Mayor is attending a function in place of the Mayor.

At most functions the Mayor/Deputy Mayor will wear their Chains of Office. Civic Robes are only worn at major civic functions such as Remembrance Sunday, Memorial Services or Freedom of the Borough ceremonies.

The Mayor of Castlereagh for 2014 - 2015 is Alderman Jack Beattie, MBE
