Senior Planning Officer (Enforcement)
Here at Gloucestershire County Council, we want to make sure we’re looking after the future of our county by making the right planning decisions. There is a great opportunity for you to do this by joining our planning development management team and to focus on dealing with enforcement issues.
How you’ll make a difference…
Your casework could potentially include assessing compliance for minerals and waste management sites or planning applications submitted on the county council estate such as development at schools, libraries and fire stations. We are particularly looking for candidates with extensive experience in monitoring & enforcement. Alternatively you can demonstrate experience of utilising legal procedures and processes to carry out monitoring, compliance and enforcement work.
As you’ll be required to travel throughout the county, you should have a full, clean driving licence and access to your own transport. You’ll be required to travel throughout this rural county and to make site inspections at short notice, so you will need to be able to make suitable transport arrangements.
What we need from you…
You should have a relevant degree and/or appropriate skills in either development management or monitoring, compliance and enforcement processes. You may be currently undertaking these areas of work at a County or Unitary Council, or in a district council and looking for a bigger, more technical challenge. Alternatively you may have demonstrable experience using legal procedures and processes to carry out monitoring, compliance and enforcement work. You’ve a good knowledge of planning legislation and policies at local and national level. If you’re eligible for Membership of the Royal Town Planning Institute (MRTPI), that’s even better. A great team player and an exceptional communicator, particularly when it comes to negotiating, you’ve a talent for dealing with a range of colleagues and customers.
What you’ll get in return…
This provides a fantastic opportunity to develop your career and for those with experience to extend their knowledge and skills and work on a range of cases particularly in the fields of minerals and waste planning.
