Job description and person specification

The borough has significant investment programmes planned or underway and is experiencing unprecedented growth which is set to continue. We are in a great position to continue to shape this growth and create great places with a genuine commitment to achieving high quality design. We are a high performing council and we want you to share these attributes.

Our team needs great communicators who can engage effectively with others at all levels. You will need confidence, in depth knowledge, a delivery mind set and the passion to help make our organisation the very best. In return, you'll have the opportunity to hone your expertise in a local authority environment.

You will need to demonstrate previous success in development management along with a track record showing your extensive experience. By doing this to the highest standards you will not only play a key role in ensuring that we continue to meet performance targets but crucially improve the quality of development and ensure development is based firmly on sustainable design principles.

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 be a key post in the Planning team and will assist in the development of colleagues and 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.

We offer a friendly working environment, flexible working hours, generous holiday entitlement and a excellent local government pension. It is a fantastic place to live, work and visit. We are a supportive employer who is flexible but who demands the very best.

Due to the contact with senior leadership, elected members and the public, this is a politically restricted role.
