At Lichfield we have a significant growth agenda and a strong emphasis on quality design, and we are looking for an enthusiastic individual who can contribute towards this.  The candidate should ideally be a qualified planner (MRTPI) with substantial post qualification experience in development management, including within a Local Planning Authority.  You should have a good knowledge of the planning system, excellent organisational and time management skills and be a good team player with the ability to negotiate on complex schemes and have good written and verbal communication skills.  An appreciation and understanding of urban design principles would also be very useful in this role.

You will work in a senior capacity within our busy development management team and your work will include dealing with major applications and projects with an emphasis on contributing towards the Council’s committed development team approach and high quality service.   You would also provide a deputising role for the team leader and be required to present at Planning Committee (evening meetings).

Please note we are seeking to appoint at Band I and therefore applicants should ensure they can demonstrate they meet the person specification and competency for this level.
