This is a fantastic opportunity for a senior lobbyist to lead a broad coalition of 26 organisations from across a range of sectors at a crucial time for planning legislation and policy.
Coalition Co-ordinator, Better planning coalition
Job ref: BPC-CC/chm
Contract: 12 month fixed term contract
Based: London N1 office based but the ability to work 2-3 days from home
Salary: £50,000 - £60,000 per year (depending on experience)
The Better planning coalition is committed to working together in partnership on the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill and the review of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) for the benefit of climate, nature and people.
This coalition recognises the value of working collaboratively in order to maximise influence. All organisations are committed to the overarching 'Six tests for planning’, which will form the foundation for the coalition's work on both the Bill and the NPPF. In order to help do this well, they have secured funding from the European Climate Foundation for a senior influencer to lead the coalition for one year. To underpin this person’s work, a 'Ways of working’ document has been produced, which has been developed and agreed by coalition members. The Better planning coalition is a formalised version of a looser coalition that has been working together since August 2020 in response to the government’s 'Planning for the Future’ White Paper.
