Deputy Lieutenants

To help carry out the wide range of duties, the Lord-Lieutenant is entitled to appoint up to 59
Deputy Lieutenants (DLs).


Deputy Lieutenants are residents of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire (or living within 7 miles of the boundary) who have made a significant contribution to the well-being of the local or wider community through public life, charitable activity, voluntary service or the uniformed services. Like the Lord-Lieutenant, they are unpaid and undertake their duties on a voluntary basis. Their appointment does not terminate with the changing of the Lord-Lieutenant, but by statute they retire at age 75.


As representatives of the Crown, Deputy Lieutenants are expected to uphold the highest standards of professional and personal conduct at all times.
