City councillor Judith Lubbock has been put forward for the role of Norwich's next Lord Mayor.
The Liberal Democrat councillor, who represents the Eaton ward, was the sole nomination at a city council meeting on Tuesday night.
The current Lord Mayor of Norwich is Keith Driver, and the mayor-making ceremony for the 2014-15 Lord Mayor of Norwich has been provisionally planned for a date in June next year.
Mrs Lubbock first became a councillor in 1995 and has since been re-elected in 1999, 2004, 2008 and 2012. She will stand for re-election in May 2016. The council committees she currently sits on include: grants working party, scrutiny, standards, and sustainable development panel.
She is keen to promote alternatives to the car, especially for trips into the city centre, and one of her priorities is to promote Norwich as a walking and cycling city.
