Looking for a new Chair of Gloucestershire Local Nature Partnership

Gloucestershire Local Nature Partnership (GLNP) is looking for a new chair to replace Doug Hulyer, who is stepping down after a successful six years in role.  

GLNP is a partnership made up of over 30 organisations from public, private and third sector bodies from across the county, all working together to recognise the importance of embedding nature's value in local decisions for the benefit of nature, people and the economy.  


The chair’s role is a voluntary position, with the responsibility of leading the Board and the wider partnership at this exciting time as we roll-out our new strategy.  


They will chair sessions of the Board (currently meeting six times annually) and of the wider partnership (currently two meetings annually); and will represent the LNP at national, regional and local meetings.  


Working with the GLNP Partnership Manager (paid role hosted by Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust), the chair will oversee the work of the partnership, and help ensure that the Board’s aims are delivered.
