Charnwood Borough sits within the three cities of Leicester, Nottingham and Derby. One third of the 167,000 population live in the thriving university town of Loughborough, with most of the remaining two thirds within the small towns and villages of the Wolds, the Soar and Wreake Valleys, Charnwood Forest and on the edge of Leicester.

We are looking for a dynamic, motivated and organised planning professional with significant recent experience of complex major development proposals to join our Major Development Team.

You will manage and deliver a caseload of applications of varying complexity, particularly larger or more controversial proposals and planning performance agreements. This will include the delivery of major development sites identified in our recent local plan including sustainable urban extensions, an extension to the existing Loughborough University Science & Enterprise Park and the regeneration of the Watermead area of Thurmaston. You will also prepare evidence and appear as an expert witness for planning appeals and present applications at Plans Committee meetings.

You must be a good team player, able to communicate clearly and effectively with a wide variety of people and work to tight deadlines with the minimum of supervision, exercising tact and diplomacy at all times.

A commitment to providing excellent customer service and continuous service improvement is essential.
