This is an exciting time to be working for Preston City Council and we are investing in our Planning service in order to deliver our corporate priorities and statutory duties. The city is facing significant changes and challenges with many new and high-quality developments occurring throughout the city, and the Planning Service is at the centre of much of what is happening. We are now looking to recruit a Senior Planning Support Assistant within the Development Management team to undertake a range of functions relating to the processing of planning applications.

As part of your duties, you will play a key role in supporting the admin function of the team, including carrying out plan checking, validation duties in relation to planning applications and assisting in the preparation of agendas and presentations for Planning Committee meetings. You will also provide technical support and administration assistance to professional planning officers in processing applications, issuing decisions and assist in the background work associated with planning conditions, appeals, legal agreements and enforcement action. 

We are seeking an enthusiastic, well organised and self-motivated individual who can work as part of a team but also individually using their own initiative to take up this role within the Planning Support team. You will be required to work to deadlines; therefore you must have good time management skills. Previous experience and/or an understanding of the Development Management process would be highly advantageous but not essential. You will need to have an extensive understanding of Microsoft Office products and electronic document management systems. You must have excellent communication skills to deal with a wide range of customers, including the public and professionals.
