Lord Mayor of York


Lord Mayor of York

The Lord Mayor of York is the Lord Mayor, Chairman of City of York Council, first citizen and civic head of York. The appointment is made by the council each year in May, at the same time appointing a Sheriff, the city's other civic head. York's Lord Mayor is second only to the Lord Mayor of London in precedence.[1]

The Mansion House, York is the Lord Mayor's home during his or her term of office.[citation needed] The Lord Mayorality was founded c.1389 by a charter of Richard II.[citation needed]

The use of the prefix "right honourable" appears to have been used since the creation of the lord mayoralty. It was confirmed to non-metropolitan district[clarification needed] by letters patent dated April 1, 1974,[2] and reconfirmed by letters patent to unitary authority[clarification needed] dated 1 April 1996.[3]
