Freedoms granted by Harrow

Honorary Freeman

The title of Honorary Freeman is the highest honour that the council can grant. It recognises people who have made an important and outstanding contribution in service of the London Borough of Harrow. 

The freedom resolution is passed at a special meeting of the council. However, the formal presentation normally takes place at a separate occasion. The certificate of the Honorary Freedom is usually presented by the Mayor.

Honorary Alderman

The Honorary Alderman/woman resolution is passed at a specially convened Council meeting. This title can be bestowed to a former councillor who has provided eminent services to the council. To find out more see our Honorary Alderman page.
