Cllr. Nick Davies
Councillor, City & County of Swansea
I am Councillor Nick Davies, a long-time resident of Uplands, first elected in 2012 and then re-elected in 2017 and for many years a governor (and for two years Chair of Governors) at Brynmill Primary School where both my children were educated.
It’s an honour to represent Uplands. It’s a fantastic place: the parks, the shops, the cafes, the restaurants, the pubs, but above all, the people. Since being elected I have tried to be there for people and make a difference. I was involved in the planning and organising of the Uplands Market and helped out as a volunteer. I continue actively to support this fantastic community asset. I have been pleased to support the efforts of the Friends of Brynmill Park and the Friends of Cwmdonkin Park in protecting the parks and putting on community events. I actively support the efforts of the Traders’ Association to improve the area. The Do Not Gentle Festival , which I have also supported, keeps Uplands firmly on the cultural map.
I’m proud of what’s been achieved since being first elected in 2012 and I was honoured by the vote of confidence I received when re-elected in 2017, but it’s never enough. There’s always more that needs doing. I am pleased to be part of a Labour administration that wants to make Uplands, and Swansea as good as it can be.
As a Labour councillor and a socialist I believe in public services and improving the quality of life for everyone, not just those with the ability to pay. I am proud to be part of an administration which has protected jobs and services, despite all the politically-driven austerity coming from Westminster aimed at destroying effective public services, and the vindictive way Westminster has treated Wales.

I am the Council’s Sustainable Transport Champion. Sustainable transport is any form of transport other than the private car: public transport, cycling and walking. Affordable and integrated transport is vital for increasing employment and economic activity,...read more
The number of letting boards in Uplands and Brynmill, advertising vacant Houses in Multiple Occupancy (HMOs) is a matter of local concern. It makes the area look shabby, as if no one wants to live here. Letting agents keeps these up all year, even if there isn’t a...read more

When Uplands Labour councillors were elected in 2012 we wanted to unify not divide our community and change it for the better. Students bring life and wealth to our community, but too many Houses in Multiple Occupation threaten to make Uplands and Brynmill...read more
