Do you want to join the Cotswolds Conservation Board team to help deliver a lasting positive legacy for the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)?

The Cotswolds AONB Rail Corridor Enhancement Project is a two-year project which aims to address the adverse impacts of electrification works that have been carried out along a 10km section of the Great Western Main Line railway between Old Sodbury and Alderton in the South Gloucestershire section of the AONB.

Network Rail has provided the Cotswolds Conservation Board with funding to develop, manage and deliver this project. The focus of the project will be on two key areas:

  • Line-side planting and other schemes which help to mitigate the landscape and visual impact of the electrification works, within a 6km-wide corridor.
  • Schemes across a wider area of the Cotswolds AONB, that compensate for the adverse impacts of the electrification works by contributing to the Board’s statutory purposes.

Most of the funding will be allocated through a grants programme, working in partnership with local landowners and communities.

The Project Officer will ensure that the project is effectively designed and delivered to ensure maximum impact; external stakeholders are positively engaged; budgets and grants are managed effectively; the project is communicated effectively to key stakeholders; and reporting requirements to the relevant bodies are met. 

Closing date: Monday 2 December 2019, 12pm.

Interview dates: Monday 9 December and Tuesday 10 December 2019.
