Chance to influence Wychavon’s work

Evesham Editorial 5th Jun, 2023   0

RESIDENTS have the chance to directly influence Wychavon’s work supporting communities, dealing with rural issues and regenerating town centres.

Volunteers are being sought to become co-opted members of one of Wychavon’s three advisory panels – Communities and Funding, Rural Matters and Town Centres. All three panels have a key role in advising the council’s main decision-making Executive Board on various policies.

Issues the panels will focus on range from tourism and town centre master planning to community transport and funding for community projects.

Each panel meets about six times a year and the role would ideally suit someone who can think strategically, has knowledge of the issues involved, a connection with Wychavon and time to commit to attending meetings and activities. Travel expenses and training will be provided.

The role is open to anyone aged 18 and over who meets all the other criteria listed. Successful candidates will be appointed from late June 2023 until 31 May 2025.

Existing Wychavon district councillors and staff cannot apply and parish or town councillors or staff will only be considered if they can provide additional experience beyond their current role.

Coun Bradley Thomas, leader of Wychavon District Council, said: “This is a great opportunity to directly influence our work and decision-making by working alongside officers offering constructive challenge, support and fresh ideas.”

Visit or call 01386 565517. The deadline for applications is 5pm today (Monday)
