- 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.
