Appointment of Parish Path Liaison Officer (PPLO (s)) – a voluntary position




Priddy Parish Council is seeking a new PPLO or two if there are people who would like to share the role.




As PPLO(s) you will volunteer in partnership with Somerset’s Rights of Way team and Priddy Parish Council.


Priddy parish is the only parish that falls entirely within the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Mendip Hills AONB is visited annually by thousands of people.

It is really important that Priddy’s large network of footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways, byways, common land and open access land is accessible, with well-maintained and easy to find paths for everyone to explore, whether visitors to the area or local people. Many paths cross parish boundaries so this important role may bring you into contact with neighbouring PPLO’s and with the Mendip Hills AONB unit.

This role might suit keen active walkers and / or runners, it will certainly keep you fit! It is hoped that the initial activity would include a parish wide rights of way condition survey starting this summer with the help of volunteers.


In the first instance please email parish.clerk@priddyparish.org to register your interest in becoming PPLO.


Priddy Parish Council would like to thank the outgoing PPLO for all his efforts on behalf of Priddy.
