The North East of Scotland Transport Partnership (Nestrans) is one of seven statutory Regional Transport Partnerships, established under the Transport (Scotland) Act 2005 to take a strategic approach to transport planning and delivery. Working within the administrative areas of Aberdeen City and Shire, Nestrans region covers around 10% of Scotland’s population.
We have developed a Regional Transport strategy to complement the region’s Economic Manifesto and Strategic Development Plan mapping out how transport will support and deliver benefits to our economy, our communities, our environment and our quality of life over the next 15 – 20 years.
The Partnership Board consists of 8 Councillor Members, 4 each nominated by our constituent Councils and 4 non- Councillor Members. A vacancy exists for a non-Councillor Board Member and applications are invited from interested individuals who have the necessary flair, experience and ability to help share the future development of the transport strategy and delivery at the regional level. Applicants are expected to have personal and/or operational expertise and knowledge of working at Board or strategic level in the business public or voluntary sectors.
Knowledge of transport issues and financial awareness is also desirable. Board Membership is not paid but certain expenses are met. The successful candidate will be expected to attend up to 6 meetings a year with possibility of an additional few informal meetings. Appointment will be to 30 April 2019.
