Due to the proposed dualling of the A46 around Newark by National Highways through the NSIP process, a post has arisen within our Planning Development team. We are recruiting a Planner to join the team to allow one of our existing Planners to focus on this project.
The project is currently scheduled to last for 12 months but it is anticipated that it may well continue beyond this so there is a possibility that the contract may be extended.
Geographically Newark and Sherwood is the largest District in Nottinghamshire, incorporating the centres of Newark, Southwell and Ollerton, together with large rural areas. The planning department deals with schemes ranging from large urban extensions (3000 houses and associated infrastructure), employment and retail developments, flood risk issues, schemes for gypsy and traveller provision and protecting the area’s important heritage.
We are a dynamic and progressive planning authority with the first Core Strategy and Allocations DPDs in Nottinghamshire, the first Community Infrastructure Levy in England, and a programme to deliver growth in the context of a fantastic historic and natural environment.
We’re looking for a fully qualified Planning Officer, with demonstrable experience, to work across the Council’s planning department, dealing with a full range of activities including pre-application enquiries, applications and appeals within a District with a diverse range of planning issues.
We can offer a competitive salary, enrolment in the local government pension scheme, a generous annual leave entitlement that increases with service, free car parking**, a whole host of family-friendly benefits, flexi-time, hybrid working, 1 days’ paid volunteering leave, a health cashback plan, access to an employee benefits platform and £10/month membership at one of our four gyms in the district.
