The title Honorary Alderman is the highest award that can be made to a former councillor in recognition of exceptional service to the council
We can award this honour to a councillor on their retirement from the council. It is an entirely honorary position, bringing no special rights, but is intended to reflect the esteem of the wider community.
To be eligible, the councillor must have made a significant contribution to the council and the people it represents.
The position of Honorary Alderman is non-political.
