At Cromer, the 2012-13 deputy mayor David Pritchard was voted into the mayor's seat, with Dorothy Airs backed to be the new deputy mayor. Mr Pritchard succeeds Gwen Smith, who was presented a past mayor's medal.
At Holt, current mayor Bryan Payne was unanimously voted back in, with his deputy John Allison also re-elected for another year.
At Stalham, retired GP Dr Duncan Edmonds was appointed as the new chairman. He replaces Barry Mobbs, who stepped down after two years.
Elizabeth Jackson was re-elected as vice chairman.
