Theatres Trust, the national advisory public body for theatres, seeks a full-time Planning Adviser to fulfil the Trust’s role as a statutory consultee in the English, Welsh and Scottish planning systems.

You will be our expert in all things planning, working as part of a proactive team of expert advisers in theatre architecture, management and heritage.  The work of the Advisory Team is at the heart of delivering our vision to help theatre operators, local authorities and community groups preserve, develop and build the very best theatres serving communities across the UK.

Your skills and expertise in policy will help us advocate for and contribute to changes in National Planning Policy and strengthening the provision for cultural facilities in Local Plans.  Your planning skills will complement the advisory team in giving expert pre-application advice and will ensure we fulfil our statutory consultee role on theatre related planning applications.  Your advice and policy work will involve working directly with LPAs, theatre operators, architects and developers to achieve excellent, viable theatres as part of great placemaking.

With a new Director appointed in January, we are currently undergoing an exciting time of change as we embark upon delivering a new vision and three year plan for the organisation.  This role offers an opportunity to contribute to shaping the organisation’s strategic direction and delivering on our objectives.
