Torquay, South West



Assistant Director Planning, Housing and Climate Emergency
Torbay Council
Torbay, Devon 
Reference: 02873
£85,063 - £94,571
Permanent, full time 

Torbay is a beautiful place to live and work, and is experiencing a revival with considerable new investment in the area, along with great potential for further regeneration. Apart from the fantastic coastline and heritage of Torbay, Dartmoor is on the doorstep, along with easy access to Exeter and the wider south west.  The Spatial Planning Service is undergoing a renaissance and we have an enthusiastic and talented team working to help ensure that the service areas will fulfil their potential.  Planning not only has a leading role in the regeneration of Torbay but also in responding to and leading the Climate Change Emergency agenda.  

Torbay Council is a unitary authority and is therefore responsible for the full range of local government services. The Assistant Director post forms an integral part of the Council’s Senior Leadership team, ensuring that planning is at the heart of corporate decision making and the response to the Climate Change Emergency is embedded into the Council’s work. The post has been specifically designed to combine the key functions of Spatial Planning, Development Management, Building Control, Strategic Transport Planning, Housing Delivery and Climate Change to deliver a planned and coordinated approach to the regeneration of the bay. 

We want to appoint an exceptional and enthusiastic Assistant Director who can build on the solid foundation of our recent achievements and ensure that the service is able to make a substantial and positive impact.   We want your professional ambition to match our strategic aspirations and for you to make a real difference to the future of Torbay. Candidates must be able to thrive in a collaborative environment, including working closely with community partnerships, and understand the role’s contribution to the wider Place Directorate and the regional context.

For a confidential discussion please contact Andrew England or Kevin Mowat on 01803 208433 or email Andrew.england@torbay.gov.uk.
