Mendip Hills AONB Partnership seeks Chair & Vice-Chair

Wednesday 29th November 2017

The Mendip Hills AONB Partnership are seeking to appoint a new Chair and Vice-chair to lead their work for at least the next two years.

The Mendip Hills AONB Partnership brings together organisations and interests and provides a strategic and co-ordinated lead to the protection and enhancement of the nationally designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

One of the roles may be filled by an independent individual who is not currently on the Partnership. The other role must be filled by a councillor from one of the funding bodies.

Jim Hardcastle, Manager of the Mendip Hills AONB said, ‘This is a great opportunity for someone from the Partnership and someone who wants to help the Mendip Hills AONB but who isn’t on the Partnership to get involved. It’s a really important time ahead for the AONB with the review of the five year management plan, Brexit and pressure from housing development. We’re looking for people with the right skills and experience backed up by a love for this nationally protected area.’

If you would like to help shape the conservation and enhancement of this nationally protected landscape, please download the Requirements document here (PDF Download 110KB). Deadline for applications is the 22nd December.
