INTERESTED IN BECOMING A COMMUNITY COUNCILLOR? A great chance to work together as a team and get the best for your community! To find out more, have a chat with our Clerk or any of our members. “The Good Councillors Guide” is also helpful and can be found here.
WARDS & SEATS: Each community councillor represents a ‘ward’. There are 10 seats on the Llansteffan and Llanybri Community Council – 5 seats for Llansteffan Ward and 5 seats for Llanybri Ward. Llansteffan and Llanybri are a joint Ward, all 10 councillors work together for the good of both villages. Contact details for all councillors can be found below. You may find it easier to contact councillors representing your village, but as Llansteffan and Llanybri is a joint ward you do not have to.
MEMBER’S CODE OF CONDUCT: The Council has adopted the Local Authorities Model Code of Conduct which governs the conduct of councillors when acting in that capacity – English copy here and Welsh copy here. The Model Code of Conduct (Wales) (Amendment) Order 2016 can be found here. The Amendment Order was adopted by the Community Council on 18th April 2016. In brief, the Order has:
- Removed the obligation on members to report potential breaches of the Code to the Ombudsman (thus relying on local low-level complaint resolution processes);
- Transferred responsibility for maintaining the Register of Member’s Interests to the Clerk (the Register of Interests can be found in the ‘Your Council’ drop down menu click on Declarations of Interests);
- Clarified that all personal interests disclosed must be entered in the Register;
- Clarified the position in relation to member’s participation in any business relating to constituency interests.

Having grown up in Llansteffan I am passionate about preserving the vibrant character of this special community. In particular I am interested in representing the viewpoint and needs of the younger generations living locally, of promoting environmentalism, and of implementing flourishing but sustainable tourism. I have a BSc in Marine and Freshwater Biology, have worked in six different local hospitality businesses, and am also keenly involved in the local History Society and Llansteffan Sports Club.
The community spirit of the people of Llansteffan has inspired me to join the LLCC. Our picturesque village, beaches and countryside need to be protected from over development and environmental pollution. Our community and businesses need to be supported to ensure the vibrancy of the village continues. I am passionate to work hard on behalf of the residents so please contact me with any concerns about or suggestions to improve village life.
I started my career as a chartered surveyor choosing to work with local authorities and housing associations to provide affordable housing for key workers. Once I started a family, I worked part time in schools helping children struggling in education including supporting parents to access assessment and to benefit from Local Authority funding. Since my move to Llansteffan, I now volunteer with a charity in Carmarthen helping people struggling with debt to get themselves back on track.
