An enthusiastic individual is sought for exciting post


ViewTHE Cranborne Chase AONB Partnership is looking to recruit an independent chairman.

An enthusiastic individual is being sought who will be able to chair the Partnership with knowledge and/or experience and, most importantly, a genuine interest in some of the following: landscape, the natural and historic environment, rural communities and economy, farming, forestry, planning, rural tourism and volunteering.

The AONB Partnership Board (made up of 18 national and local organisations, including the nine local authorities involved) guides implementation of the AONB Management Plan 2014-19 through a small AONB team in conjunction with the various organisations that have responsibilities, duties or an interest in the area. The AONB Partnership and team are involved in numerous initiatives covering a wide range of topics.

This is an unpaid position although an annual honorarium and reasonable mileage will be paid. The requirement is to chair two Partnership Board meetings a year, the biennial AONB Forum and to champion the work of the AONB Partnership and team. The AONB Partnership structure is also under review and the new Chairman will have the opportunity to input into that process.

In the first instance contact the AONB Director, Linda Nunn, for an information pack and/or an informal discussion on the role of Chairman, email: lindanunn@cranbornechase.org.uk; tel: 01725 517417.

Expressions of interest should be made by Monday 26 February 2018.
