Councillor Doug Lawson is Chair of Penrith Town Council and was elected the forth Mayor of Penrith on 15 May 2023.
The many engagements undertaken by the Mayor act as a link between the various groups and organisations in the Town.
The Mayor can share the views and concerns of the community with the Council and can take the Council’s message out into the community working towards achieving the Council’s social, educational and economic priorities.
The role of Mayor is distinct from that of Councillor and the Mayor acts in a non-political manner when carrying out the civic role.
The Deputy Mayor, Councillor Mark Rudhall will attend functions when the Mayor is unable to do so. The Council’s Civic Protocol governs the Mayors duties and responsibilities.
If you would like to talk to the Mayor please contact us and we will arrange an appointment as your views are important and face-to-face ‘conversations’ like this will help to inform the Council and enhance effectiveness.
