Our client is a Local Authority based in the North West of England, and they are seeking an experienced Team Leader for their Development Management team. You will oversee a team of around 13 officers including DM Officers and Enforcement Officers and you will be responsible for ensuring the effective delivery of planning application assessments, including the management of appeals. As well as day to day management of your team you may, on occasion, be called to act as an expert witness and also be required to deputise for the Group Manager of Development Control & Building Management.

Applicants for this post must be qualified Town Planners with experience of local authority town planning. Your strong technical knowledge of UK planning legislation will need to be complimented with good management skills and the confidence and ability to direct a team. Critical to this role will be the ability to communicate effectively and to engage in negotiations that can often be sensitive and complex so you will need to be able to engage productively with third parties to develop good relationships that ensure successful development.

A full JD is available.
