Do you believe that the built and natural environments have profound impacts on people’s health, wellbeing and life chances?

Are you interested in a role that will help secure homes, places and communities where everyone can thrive?

The Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) is looking to appoint two new Trustees and if you answered a resounding ‘yes’ to the questions above then these could be the roles for you!

2021 will be an exciting year for the TCPA. We have published our new five year strategy and we know that now, more than ever, there is an urgent need for places to be resilient to environmental, economic and social challenges.

To help implement our strategy we are looking to broaden the skills and range of perspectives on our Board. You do not need to be an expert in town planning or have a background working in the built environment sector. We are particularly interested in candidates who believe in the importance of the work we do and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Finance, fundraising, new business development
  • Communications and public relations
  • Private sector/ development experience
  • Charity governance and/or organisational management

Inclusion is a core value of our organisation and we are passionate about promoting diversity and representation in our Association. We positively encourage applications regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, gender identification, marital status, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.

This is an unpaid voluntary position, however reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.


Closing date: 5pm on Thursday 25th February
