CPRE campaigns for a better future for the English countryside. We work locally and nationally to protect, shape and enhance a beautiful, thriving countryside for everyone to value and enjoy. Our aim is to get the right homes built in the right places while resisting inappropriate development.

CPRE Kent, the Kent Branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England, is looking to recruit one or more experienced planning professionals to deal with a diverse and inspiring workload as part of a small team of knowledgeable and passionate staff and volunteers. Based in the historic village of Charing, near Ashford, you will be committed to helping us protect Kent’s countryside.

We are seeking one or more professionals with a background in town planning policy and with proficient and demonstrable experience of preparing or shaping Local Plans.

  • You will undertake, in conjunction with volunteers on local district committees, consultation responses to Local Plans to ensure that CPRE Kent’s objectives are effectively presented and taken into account in planning decisions made across Kent and Medway.
  • You will also take part in responding to major planning applications and helping communities frame their own inputs to planning challenges.
  • You will also participate in CPRE Kent’s representation at planning appeals and public inquiries.

Candidates must be flexible team workers and preference will be given to those who can demonstrate an understanding of broader planning and environmental issues. The successful candidate will need to be able to travel occasionally, usually within Kent, and to attend occasional meetings and events during evenings and weekends.
