Cllr Jenny Davies

Member of Burton Latimer Town Council

About Jenny

I am 79 years old and a widow; I was a Liberal Democrat councillor in Luton for 34 years and was Deputy Leader of Luton Borough Council.

When my husband died in 2013, I moved to Burton Latimer to be near to my family; this has proved to be a happy move. I was elected to Burton Latimer Town Council in a by-election in September 2016 and re-elected in May 2021. As well as sitting on several committees I served a term as Town Mayor.

Over the years I have been involved in many campaigns, most of them against unsuitable developments or the loss of green space. These campaigns led to a particular interest in planning matters; I am currently Chair of Burton Latimer's Planning Committee. I also have a deep concern for the environment. A long-standing interest in astronomy taught me just how small and vulnerable our lovely planet is - if we mess it up there is nowhere else to go!

I have always believed that the most important duty of a councillor is to do everything possible to support constituents who have problems or queries.

On a personal level, I am disabled with arthritis, walk short distances with a stick and use a mobility scooter - which gives me a special interest in the state of the local pavements!
