AN EXCITING AND CHALLENGING OPPORTUNITY HAS ARISEN FOR A PRINCIPAL PLANNING OFFICER WITHIN THE DEVELOPMENT MANAGEMENT SECTION.


Newport is a city on the rise and has ambitious growth and regeneration ambitions. Alongside this, the city is also home to beautiful countryside and numerous heritage assets providing a diverse environment to work in.

This is a key permanent, full time post responsible for dealing with major, controversial and high profile planning applications including those that form strategic regeneration initiatives for the city, those subject to Environmental Impact Assessments and those requiring highly complex negotiations relating to Section 106 contributions. Other duties include providing pre-application advice for such projects, dealing with significant enforcement cases, associated appeal work, deputising for the Area Team Manager, assisting in the supervision of the team and presenting reports both to delegated meetings and Planning Committee. The postholder will play a major role in the determination of development proposals which may have a significant bearing on the regeneration of the city of Newport as well as the performance and image of the development management service.

Candidates must hold a recognised qualification in Town Planning. Corporate Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute would be an advantage. Substantial experience of dealing with a wide range of development management issues is essential. The planning service in Newport has a high workload and so you will also have experience of working under pressure.

An ability to drive and access sites for the purpose of undertaking site visits is desirable.

For an informal discussion about this opportunity, please contact Steve Williams ([email protected]).

We welcome applications for all our jobs in either Welsh or English. An application submitted in Welsh will not be treated less favourably than an application submitted in English.

Newport City Council is committed to working towards its workforce being more representative of the population that we serve and particularly welcomes applications from people from the minority ethnic communities represented (or living) in the city. Selection will be made on ability and skills to undertake the role.
