Senior Planning Officer
Tewkesbury is a great place to be a planner. The borough contains a wide variety of high quality town and landscapes including the Cotswolds A.O.N.B, 14 Conservation Areas and over 1800 listed buildings. There are also large areas designated as Green Belt and areas at risk of flooding.
Within this stunning environment, Tewkesbury is responsible for delivery much of the planned growth within the area arising from the recently adopted Joint Core Strategy covering Cheltenham, Gloucester and Tewkesbury. All this makes for exciting and challenging planning.
We are looking to recruit enthusiastic and proactive planning professionals with a flair for positive decision making to help with our varied and challenging work, with a key focus on major housing and mixed use development proposals. This is a great opportunity to contribute towards promoting sustainable growth in Tewkesbury Borough and influence the future of our communities and places.
You will carry a caseload of applications, appeals and enquiries. At the senior officer level this will include varied major development schemes. We don’t rest on our laurels here at Tewkesbury, and you will also support the process of driving forward business improvements to help us be the best we can be to serve our customers.
You must have completed a RTPI recognised planning degree, or equivalent. For the Senior Planning Officer role you will have experience dealing with complex/major applications and for both roles will have excellent working knowledge of development management and planning law.
Come and make a real difference, helping us to deliver high quality new developments for our new and existing communities in Tewkesbury Borough where a good quality of life is open to all.
