Senior Urban Designer
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has unmatched built heritage sitting alongside thriving iconic retail centres, a vibrant specialist employment market, an international medical quarter and world class cultural attractions. We are home to wealthy areas, but also to some of the most deprived wards in London.
The Council has an ambitious commitment to build a new generation of affordable homes with jobs, public realm and facilities to make conservation areas of the future. We’re taking a proactive approach to enforcement which is forging its own reputation and, unlike many, we have a NPPF compliant Local Plan and have already submitted a major review for examination. We will create the places, homes and local employment we need whilst protecting what makes the borough unique.
So your job dealing with urban design matters in the borough is to ensure that our communities are well served not only in terms of safeguarding what is cherished but will also benefit from innovative approaches to design and implementation to ensure that our residential quality of life is improved for everyone.
If you love place making and planning, enjoy working in a collaborative way and want to use your urban design skills creatively to nurture the future of one of the most wonderful parts of London, we want to hear from you.
