Councillor Karan Lane

Councillor Karan Lane

Karan is Pontyclun ‘born and bred’, and attended local schools.  She lives on Maesyfelin, and has always lived within the Maesyfelin ward.

She studied law at university before starting her working life with the Welsh Joint Education Committee. After 5 happy years with the WJEC she began a legal career with Eversheds LLP in Cardiff.  Following this, she spent over 9 years with Rhondda Cynon Taff Council as part of their Legal Services team. During this time she was proud to be working, in some way, for the benefit of the RCT area.

Kara’s working life is currently both exciting and challenging.  Her time each working week is divided equally, firstly as part of the in-house legal team for a local electricity distribution Company, and secondly as a member of the Property and Contracts team for the legal department of another Local Authority.


Karan’s passion is theatre and she has a particular love of musicals.  She is also a regular concert goer and enjoy travelling around the Country to concerts with a group of friends.  She is also an avid reader of historical novels and crime thrillers.


St Pauls’ Players, Pontyclun. Every year I take part in the annual Christmas Panto. Great fun!

I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives.
