LLANSTEFFAN WARD LOCAL MEMBER: County Cllr. Carys Jones represents Llansteffan Ward. This Ward encompasses Llansteffan, Llanybri, Llangain and Llangynog community wards.

WARDS & SEATS: Each community councillor represents a ‘ward’. There are 10 seats on the Community Council – 5 seats for Llansteffan Ward and 5 seats for Llanybri Ward. Contact details for all councillors are found below. You may find it easier to contact councillors representing your ward, but 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:

  1. Removed the obligation on members to report potential breaches of the Code to the Ombudsman (thus relying on local low-level complaint resolution processes);
  2. Transferred responsibility for maintaining the Register of Member’s Interests to the Clerk;
  3. Clarified that all personal interests disclosed must be entered in the Register;
  4. Clarified the position in relation to member’s participation in any business relating to constituency interests.

Llansteffan and Llanybri Community Council

Chair – Cllr Cerian Lodwick – Llanybri Ward

Vice-Chair – Cllr Anthea Evans – Llansteffan Ward
I came to live in Llansteffan in 2015 after spending 10 years running a Chambres d’Hôtes with my husband in southwest France. Prior to this I lived in Yorkshire, North Wales and Warwickshire. We were so delighted to find Llansteffan and we have not been disappointed. I feel very grateful to be able to live in such a wonderful place with such an interesting and friendly community. I have worked in education for over 35 years as a teacher, headteacher and a school’s Inspector. These experiences have strengthened my belief in the importance of contributing to one’s community. I have been very involved with Llansteffan Memorial Hall since living in Llansteffan and am currently Secretary to the Hall Committee. I became a councillor in early 2019. I enjoy creative pursuits, walking and am a keen conservationist.

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.
