Permanent, part-time (30hours per week)
Principal Planning Officer (Strategic Development)
Charnwood Borough sits within the three cities of Leicester, Nottingham and Derby. One third of the 167,000 population live in the thriving university town of Loughborough, with most of the remaining two thirds within the small towns and villages of the Wolds, the Soar and Wreake Valleys, Charnwood Forest and on the edge of Leicester.
We are looking for a dynamic planning professional who is motivated and organised with significant recent experience of complex major development proposals to lead and manage a small case load of major planning applications.
You will be required to deal with a wide range of complex planning and regeneration issues and to develop creative solutions. In particular, you will be involved in the planning and delivery of strategic growth in the Borough including sustainable urban extensions (2000+ dwellings), an extension to the existing Loughborough University Science & Enterprise Park, town centre regeneration and the regeneration of the Watermead area of Thurmaston.
You must be a good team player, able to communicate clearly and effectively with a wide variety of people and work to tight deadlines with the minimum of supervision, exercising tact and diplomacy at all times.
A commitment to providing excellent customer service and continuous service improvement is essential.
