Chairman - Cllr Jane WorlockChairman of the Council - Councillor Jane Worlock

Councillor Jane Worlock was elected as Chairman of Hart District Council at the Annual Meeting on 19 May 2022. The new Vice-Chairman of the Council is Councillor Peter Wildsmith.

The Chairman is the ceremonial head of the Council and first representative of the district.

While in office, the Chairman chairs full Council meetings, supports local events and functions, raises money for charity and furthers the interests and reputation of the Council. The Chairman also maintain links between Hart and other organisations, both voluntary and commercial, and promotes the district on visits elsewhere.

A serving district councillor, the Chairman must remain politically impartial and cannot be a member of the Cabinet. 

The Chairman welcomes invitations to attend events held by local organisations such as

  • Schools
  • Businesses

Due to demand, it may not be possible for the Chairman to attend every event to which she is invited.

We will contact you within one week should the Chairman be available to attend your event.

Please contact the Chairman's Secretary on 01252 774143 or email if you wish to invite the Chairman to your event.
