Chairperson & Steering Group Members needed for Sidmouth Neighbourhood Plan
Sidmouth Town Council has chosen to create a Neighbourhood Plan which will enable local people to have a say on future development in Sidmouth and the Sid Valley area (Sidmouth, Sidford, Sidbury and Salcombe Regis). The aim is to work as a whole community to develop a plan which reflects the aspirations of us all for the future of Sidmouth. To do this and to do it well, the Council is seeking a Chairperson who has the skills, qualities and capacity to lead the project as well as create a community Steering Group to deliver the project and report. In particular, the Council is looking for a Chairperson who is a collaborative leader and effective communicator with project management experience alongside willingness, enthusiasm and time to devote to the whole project.
The Steering Group will consist of volunteers from a range of disciplines who will work together to bring the following skills and experience to the process: project management, town planning, community engagement and consultation and report writing. Also required will be steering group volunteers with interests in tourism, environment, energy, history, education, health and well-being, community participation, design, architecture, law, culture/arts communication and information technology.
