We are not your average local authority planning department. We are a forward thinking, innovative, and fun team; offering a great working environment, a wide range of projects, and career development opportunities. Don’t just take our word for it though…we have just won a National RTPI Award for Planning Excellence, and last year won the LGC Best Housing Initiative Award.
We have experience of, and continue to deal with, a comprehensive range of developments types; ranging from bespoke rural schemes, to large scale commercial development. You won’t find a typical planning team approach with us…we are positive, customer focussed, and passionate about creating a great place to live, work and visit.
We are in a period of growth, with more planned, and development levels are at their highest for some time. We also have a new Local Plan underway, and are looking to recruit a Planning Policy and Strategy Manager to lead on this. In addition to taking forward what will be an ambitious new plan for the district, the role will also provide the opportunity to lead on strategic planning and manage a well established and experienced team.
In addition to a Local Government Pension Scheme; we also offer fully flexible working hours and working from home, free parking, a car allowance and access to staff benefits and discounts.
