Are you an experienced town planner looking for a new and interesting career challenge?

Do you want to work with an employer that will value your ideas and positive approach and who is committed to allowing working in an agile manner?

Presently based in the heart of Suffolk, our two councils have now been working closely together for about 5 years, transforming the way we do things under a single management team and officer structure. Now with a new Chief Executive in place, we are about to move into the heart of Ipswich, with great access to Ipswich Centre, the mainline railway station and waterfront.

It is an exciting time to join the Strategic Planning Team in Babergh and Mid Suffolk Councils, who are committed to the delivery of the councils' Joint Local Plan (JLP).

You will develop, implement and review planning policies and related strategies for Babergh and Mid Suffolk in order to achieve economic, social and environmental objectives. You will work collaboratively, flexibly and innovatively with colleagues within the service, across other delivery teams, elected members and with key stakeholders.

If you are interested in this exciting opportunity, please apply online by visiting our career pages on the Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils' website:
