The work of the Planner will include monitoring planning applications and responding to those that meet the tests for CPRE involvement: dealing with planning appeals, including hearings and public inquiries: and engaging in the development plan-making process. This is a new consultancy role within CPRE Somerset so there is a great opportunity for the right candidate to make a very significant contribution to our campaign objectives and successes at this most critical time for the challenges facing the Somerset countryside.
The successful applicant, who would work from home, will be paid on an hourly basis at a rate to be negotiated. It is envisaged that the Planner will work for around two days a week. This role is for one year initially with the possibility of extension subject to funding. The Planner will report to the Chairman of Trustees, Prof Chris Lewis, and be expected to attend quarterly Trustee meetings, usually held in Street or Taunton.
