  • Lorton & Loweswater Parish Councils.  Vacancies for Parish Clerk. As from the end of the current financial year, i.e. March 31st 2018, the Parish Clerk for both Lorton and Loweswater Parish Councils, will be retiring from the two posts. It has been agreed that initially the two posts will be advertised together to see if there is any interest shown by one person in taking on both roles.
    Both Parish Councils meet a minimum of six times per year with additional meetings being held as and when required. The bi-monthly meetings for both Councils are held every other month from January onwards with Lorton meeting on the first Wednesday evening of the month and Loweswater meeting on the first Thursday evening of the month. Lorton is the bigger Parish of the two with a larger precept, higher levels of planning activity, owns more land and undertakes a programme of grounds and bench maintenance. This is reflected in the number of hours per month that the Clerk is paid to undertake which currently stands at 15 hours. Loweswater, with a slightly smaller work load, employs the Clerk for 12 hours per month. Thus there are 27 hours per month on offer between the two councils, 324 hours per year. The hourly rate is 11.05p. Allowances are provided for use of home office and mileage payments are made for travel undertaken on Parish Council business. Training through the Cumbria Association of Local Councils will be available.
