Cranbrook could be getting its third community development worker since the town’s inception.
A vacancy for the post has been advertised online, more than a year after previous worker Keith Johnson's contract expired, in March 2018. The role of community development worker was funded by section 106 money - cash secured from agreements with housing developers.
Cranbrook has only had two community development workers, that being Mr Johnson and Corena Ward.
Last year, a £60,000 funding bid made to East Devon District Council by Andy Wood, Exeter and East Devon Growth Point projects director, was rejected.
The request was for part-funding, on the basis that extra financial backing would be enlisted elsewhere, but Mr Wood said it was refused by EDDC due to budgetary reasons.
