The Trustees have identified specific roles for which volunteers are urgently needed.
These are described below;
Planning Support Volunteer
The Trustees are also looking for an experienced person such as a retired local authority planner, to assist with ensuring the viability of the Trust’s intentions to restore the full length of the canal between Gloucester and Hereford.
The role would include work needed to;
- Monitor planning applications along the protected route of the canal.
- Submit feedback in response to planning applications that could affect the protected route.
- Manage the planning applications as we restore the canal.
- Work with others to pull the required documentation together.
- Submit the planning application.
- Deal with the local planning officers as required to ensure planning is accepted
The appointee would work with the Trustees/Board Members, mainly those with responsibility for Land issues.
To discuss the role and raise any questions, in the first instance please contact Trust Chairman Ralph Barber using contact details set out in The Wharfinger Magazine or via the Contact Us page on this website.
We are pushing forward with the development of the new Mill Barn at our Over site, Gloucestershire and are looking for a project manager to help take this on. He/she would work with the site leader on site and others to complete the building of the new Mill Barn.
We are also in discussion with developers along a number of parts of the canal to develop the canal corridor, and are therefore looking for people who would be interested in helping to work on the sites to be developed to help us get nearer to completing the restoration of the canal.
To discuss these roles and raise any questions, in the first instance please contact Trust Chairman Ralph Barber using contact details set out in The Wharfinger or via the Contact Us page on this website.
As the canal is developing, the trust needs site leaders to
- Manage the day to day operations on site, primarily working with other volunteers
- Show and awareness of the canal environment and understand the processes needed to maintain the appearance and condition of both partially and more fully restored site locations
- And/or assist with progressing restoration works at new locations along the line of the canal
We currently operate our working parties during the week, and are interested in expanding the opportunities into the weekend, so if interested in working with a current site leader and managing the site on the weekend, please contact us.
To discuss the role and raise any questions, in the first instance please contact Trust Chairman Ralph Barber using contact details set out in The Wharfinger or via the Contact Us page on this website.
