Planning Policy Officer
As Colchester continues to plan for and deliver nearly 1,000 homes a year, and with similarly ambitious targets for jobs growth and new infrastructure, it is an exciting time to work for the Borough within the Place Strategy Team.
With a new Local Plan going through Examination, testing challenging solutions for meeting growth, including two new garden communities, Colchester, together with neighbouring authorities in North Essex, is leading the way.
If you would like to join our busy and ambitious team, working in a convivial environment with a mix of disciplines keeping the work varied and interesting, then this opportunity may be just for you.
Ideally, a qualified Planner, you will contribute to the work of the Planning Policy Team as the Emerging Local Plan goes through Examination to Adoption.
You will also be involved in supporting the work on the Garden Communities as DPDs progress to Preferred Options stages later this year. Knowledge and/or interest in ecology, the coast and environment would be beneficial, although not essential.
Previous experience of working in Planning Policy or Development Management, and Membership of the RTPI, or other professional body, will reflect the position of appointment. A temporary/part-time position is also available within the team.
