 This is a rare opportunity to use your skills, knowledge and experience to help shape the future of a nationally protected landscape.  Transport corridors and proximity to major settlements make for intense development pressures within and around the AONB.

You will lead our planning work on behalf of the AONB Partnership to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the North Wessex Downs, protecting the area’s special qualities.

An RTPI member with several years’ experience of dealing with major development proposals and/or landscape/conservation planning and management, in either the public or private sectors, you will also have the skills and commitment to build strong working partnerships and inspire and influence others.

A full UK driving licence is essential for this role, and must not have more than four penalty points.

For an informal chat about the post please ring Henry Oliver on 01488 680454.
