About the Role

You will be coming in to help progress "Part 2" of their Local Plan, taking it up to Submission and through examination. Work will be allocated and distributed among the team, however, the scope of work includes:

  • Refining a major urban extension, set out in broad terms in the draft Plan, to an appropriately detailed proposal with the submission Plan
  • Progressing housing allocations across a number of villages

  • Undertaking/commissioning further evidence studies, potentially including in relation to landscape assessments, flood risk, ecology and transport

The Council operates flexible working hours and consideration will be given to a bespoke arrangement for this position that suits both parties.
