Group Leader Development Management
Charnwood Borough sits within the three cities of Leicester, Nottingham and Derby. One third of the 167,000 population live in the thriving university town of Loughborough, with most of the remaining two thirds within the small towns and villages of the Wolds, the Soar and Wreake Valleys, Charnwood Forest and on the edge of Leicester.
The Service requires a dynamic, motivated and organised planning professional. Significant recent experience of managing a Service dealing with complex major development proposals and leading the Development Management Group is essential. Including the day to day management of the Development Management, Planning Enforcement and Building Control functions.
The role will involve the delivery of major development sites identified in our new local plan including three sustainable urban extensions, an extension to the existing Loughborough University Science & Enterprise Park and the Council’s regeneration priorities. The successful candidate will also be responsible for delivering transformational change to secure excellent customer service and new and more efficient business processes and will therefore make an important contribution to the Service Management Team.
You must be able to communicate clearly and effectively with a wide variety of people and work to tight deadlines with the minimum of supervision, exercising tact and diplomacy at all times. The role will require you to deal with a wide range of complex planning and regeneration issues and to develop creative solutions.
