Spatial Planning Lead

Salary: Circa £38,500

An exciting new opportunity for an experienced spatial planner at a leading environmental charity to implement and execute high profile campaigns.

How can we build the homes we need, while protecting the countryside and the wider environment for future generations? We live in times of unprecedented development pressure and with far reaching reforms to planning law and policy expected to follow the 2020 Planning White Paper.

Could you be the person to help CPRE the countryside charity get better planning policies and decisions for the good of rural communities, the countryside and our climate? An exciting new opportunity has arisen for a spatial planning lead to support our work on influencing the planning system at a national level, research how the planning system is working at the local level and providing planning advice to our network. The position reports to the Head of Land Use & Planning.

Work with one of the country’s leading environmental charities and make a significant contribution to promoting, enhancing and protecting the countryside for everyone to enjoy.

You will have three years’ experience of developing planning policy in the English system, most likely a qualified planner, and a commitment to campaigning on subjects relevant to CPRE purposes.

You will need to have excellent communication skills, with the ability to articulate and present complex policy arguments and data. You must have experience of successfully initiating and managing projects on areas of planning policy relevant to CPRE’s work.
