If you thrive on action, you will love Dartford. Working for an ambitious authority that is well and truly on the map, no two days will be the same. Located on the edge of London, Dartford is a Borough of two halves: significant growth and regeneration in the north, with Green Belt and strong constraints on development in the south. We have exciting proposals to transform Dartford Town centre, major riverside development and a range of employment, leisure and residential schemes coming forward, including a programme of direct build Council housing. We have a 5 Year Housing Land Supply in place and are meeting the Housing Delivery Test.
We need an extra pair of hands to help us out with the strong development demand coming forward. You will handle your own case-load of major and complex applications and appeals. We are looking for an experienced Planner with strong professional skills, sound planning judgement, a good eye for design, as well as a commitment to customer care. You will play your part in ensuring that the Council’s excellent performance record is maintained and that there is ongoing improvement in the delivery of the service.
The successful applicant will join a professional, experienced and efficient team which is ambitious in striving for positive outcomes. We have a mutually supportive and sociable team culture. Development Management, Planning Policy and Planning Administration are well integrated with each other and striving to achieve common goals.
