Torquay, South West



Planning Officers - Development Management (2 posts)_
Salary: Grade I SCP 28-31 £32,234 - £34,728
Permanent, full time 

Torbay is a stunning coastal location in South Devon, close to Dartmoor National Park and in easy reach of Exeter City and the M5. Perhaps you have considered changing your base following lockdown this year? This is a beautiful location in which to live and work and the Council has serious ambitions to build on the regeneration and investment already happening in the bay including:

Completion of the £110m South Devon Link Road;
Completion of the £8m Electronics and Photonics Innovation Centre; 
75m+ Town Centre Regeneration Programme;
£4m for harbour improvements in Brixham;
Various major residential, commercial and leisure development projects.

As Planning Officers working in our fast paced, innovative and supportive Development Management team, you will be keen to facilitate growth and regeneration in Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, and deliver sustainable development in accordance with our adopted Local Plan.                 

A knowledge of conservation issues and heritage based development would also be a great advantage.

We believe this is an exciting opportunity and would suit experienced individuals looking for a new challenge, the opportunity to shape the future of the bay and deliver regeneration, and who enjoy a good work-life balance in a scenic and beautiful part of the UK. The roles will be helping to shape the post Covid-19 world, dealing with the issues of the changing planning system and addressing the challenges of the Climate Emergency declared by the Council last year.

We offer flexible working conditions, including some home-working. Job share would be considered.
If you would like an informal discussion on the post, please contact Wendy Ormsby, Service Manager for Development Management, on 07780 227602.
