Are you an enthusiastic and self-motivated town planner with experience in local plan making? Hastings Borough Council is looking for an ambitious, experienced policy planner to help us deliver a programme of high quality sustainable development and cultural regeneration. If you are ready for a new challenge with opportunities to develop professionally, this could be the role for you.
You’ll be joining the Council at an important time. The Policy Team is currently working on an Area Action Plan for Hastings Town Centre and the Bohemia area. Your immediate focus will be to play a lead part in preparing the submission plan and preparing for public consultation early next year. We will also be starting the review of our existing Local Plan in autumn 2018 and you will be expected to lead on key areas of the Review. So it’s a busy time to be joining us.
With world class coast, countryside, a thriving artist quarter, an award winning newly restored historic pier, affordable house prices, good schools and outstanding community spirit, this corner of the South Coast is a place where you'll get more of everything.
If you are committed to shaping our environment and delivering a sustainable development in our attractive seaside town, we would be pleased to hear from you.
