Senior Planner - Development Management

The post holder will have responsibility for the most complex and potentially controversial of applications as part of a varied caseload. A skilled professional, your knowledge covers Development Management; statutory regulations; and Section 106 Agreements and similar. You will have a degree (or equivalent) in Town Planning. You will also be a member of the Royal Town Planning Institute with good political and commercial awareness.

The candidate must also have experience of Committee presentation and be adept at giving evidence at informal hearings and/or Public Inquiries, and you will need to have a keen customer focus and experience working with members of the public and all stakeholders involved in the planning process, as well as excellent written and verbal communication skills and expertise in negotiation and urban design.

The successful applicant will support and assist the Development Management Leader in leading the Development Management Team, (alongside the existing Principal Planning Officer), deputising for him as necessary, including the day-to-day supervision and management of the technical and administrative support for the Team.

You will be a strong team player with a real desire to make further improvement happen and take initiative.  You will also have self-organisation and strong IT skills and be able to cope with pressures and deadlines and appreciate the benefits of team work.

Your track record and approach in all of these areas are as important as your experience or qualifications.
