CPRE Lancashire is seeking a part time Planning Officer to support the Branch Planning Manager in responding to local plan consultations, commenting on relevant planning applications and giving advice to CPRE members and the general public when making enquiries.

Our Branch has received initial funding to begin to explore how we can increase our profile and influence with the Combined Authorities of Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Liverpool City Region.

We want planning policies formulated by these new sub-regional administrative units bring about the right sort of developments in the right places, protect existing urban green spaces and create new ones, respect the openness and permanence of the Green Belt, and value the open countryside for its beauty and economic value.

We have already commenced working with a number of urban groups and individuals who share our ambition.

We are looking for a qualified planner to work from home for the next few months while we secure more permanent funding. We have a set budget but are willing to be flexible about the details of the contract; attached is a role profile.
