Applications are invited for the new post of part time Planner for CPRE Somerset. We are looking for someone who can work on a self-employed, freelance basis providing a service to the Branch. 

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.

Telephone the Chairman of CPRE Somerset, Prof Chris Lewis CBE, for an informal discussion on 07469 958430

Applications should be made by sending an up-to-date CV and covering letter to: CPRE Somerset, 8 Rowdens Road, Wells Somerset BA5 1TU or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Friday 17th March 2017
