Ward: Stanwell


Penarth councillors hold a weekly surgery at West House (Penarth Town Council Offices) from 10.00am - 11.00am, every Saturday. They are often joined by local Assembly Member Vaughan Gething, and MP Stephen Doughty.  In addition surgeries and events are regularly held in the St Augustine ward and Lis can be contacted for any specific issue on the contact numbers and email address above.


Lis Burnett was first elected to represent the St. Augustine's ward on the Vale of Glamorgan Council in May 2004 and re-elected in May 2012.  Following the 2012 election, Lis was appointed Cabinet Member with responsibility for Regeneration, Innovation, Planning and Transportation.


Formerly Head of Social Entrepreneurship at the University of Glamorgan/University of South Wales, Lis has also acted as an advisor to the Welsh Government and the Welsh Assembly on Social Enterprise.  She has previously run her own business, worked for a major UK multi-national company and as a consultant to NESTA, the UK's leading independent expert on innovation.  She has been involved in delivering innovative community to community aid projects in Uganda and in 2012 was invited to become a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in recognition of her contribution to social enterprise in Wales.


Lis feels passionately that in order to create the Vale of Glamorgan we all want to live in, we need to consider social, economic and environmental factors and also work with, and listen to, local people and their communities.
