Senior Enforcement Officer
With 2018 now just around the corner, many Local Authorities are gearing up for a busy start to the year. One such Authority, situated in a scenic part of the East of England are looking for support within their Enforcement team.
You will be carrying out site visits and surveying site developments whilst recording any evidence of breaches of planning control. This will involve interviewing members of the public, owners and occupiers of the land plus applying your own investigative skills. The authority are looking for you to efficiently and successfully prepare and present this evidence for written representation appeals, informal hearings, public inquiries and court hearings.
Effectively compiling reports and liaising with other departments within the council on all issues as well as external organisations and members will also play a key part in your role.
The pay for this role is negotiable and dependent upon your level of experience and expertise.
You'll need an up to date knowledge of planning legislation and the ability to interpret policies of the law is essential; ideally, they are looking for you to have three years experience of dealing with planning enforcement cases. It is preferable, but not essential that you hold a relevant degree qualification. In order to carry out site visits you should also hold a full driving license and have a car.
