Senior Planning Officer
Scale 5 / 6 £26,511 to £36,922 plus Comprehensive Benefits Package
including Essential Car User Allowance
37 hours per week
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 recently won a National RTPI Award for Planning Excellence, and a 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 and a 4,250 home new community which is currently under construction. 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 are looking for a talented, ambitious and qualified town planner with recent experience of dealing with a varied caseload of planning and other applications. You must be a team player who is customer focused with a positive attitude to delivering sustainable development.
