Newcastle Parks Trust – Council holding feedback sessions

Newcastle City Council are to hold feedback sessions regarding the creation of Newcastle Parks Trust.

In November 2017, after research, discussion and consultation, Newcastle City Council’s Cabinet approved the proposal for Newcastle’s parks and allotments to be managed by a new charitable company (with ownership staying with the City) supported by the National Trust and Heritage Lottery Fund.

Recruitment of Chair and Trustees

The next stage of this project is the recruitment of the inaugural
Chair and a Board of Trustees (all voluntary roles).

The posts can be found listed with Guardian Jobs Online: (closes 12 February 2018).
