It is the second time Councillor Wharmby has been Chairman of the council, having previously held the role from 2011 to 2013.
As Chairman, Councillor Wharmby takes on the official chain of office and presides over council meetings, which take place at Matlock in the council chamber at County Hall on Smedley Street six times a year.
