PAS has recently welcomed Erin Fulton to the team. Erin, having worked previously with the RSPB Scotland Loch Leven reserve managing its volunteer base, joins the organisation as our new Volunteers and Interns Manager.
PAS is Scotland’s leading people and places charity. Its work includes everything from providing free planning advice and mentoring service, to tailored training and public engagement events catering for members of the public, planning professionals, local authorities, public bodies, elected members, community groups, young people and for all those simply interested in how planning is shaping their environment.
PAS’s services are delivered by a combination of staff, associates, and a large volunteer network of more than 440 built environment professionals, including planners, architects, landscape architects and legal experts.
Commenting on her appointment, Erin Fulton said:
“I am delighted to be joining PAS as we approach a period of unprecedented change in the Scottish planning and built environment landscape. There is widespread ambition to ensure more effort is made to have communities at the heart of planning for their own places, and the work of PAS’s large and wide-ranging volunteer base will be key to delivering this ambition.”
Chief Executive, Petra Biberbach, said:
“Erin is clearly an up-and-coming talent in our sector, and we recognised the significant value she will bring to our work which is why we are delighted with her appointment.
“Volunteering is at the heart of what we do and we make considerable investment in our volunteers, in return they add unique value to our services, something widely appreciated by communities and partners and Erin will be key to driving this work forward in the coming months and years.”
