Torbay is a stunning coastal location in South Devon, close to Dartmoor National Park and in easy reach of Exeter City and the M5.  This is a beautiful location in which to live and work and the Council has serious ambitions to build on the regeneration and investment already happening in the bay including:

  • - £110m South Devon Link Road
  • - £8m Electronics and Photonics Innovation Centre
  • - £75m+ Town Centre Regeneration Programme
  • - £4m for harbour improvements in Brixham
  • - Various major residential, commercial, and leisure development projects.

As a Planning Officer working in our fast paced, innovative, and supportive Development Management team you will be keen to facilitate growth and regeneration in Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, and deliver sustainable development in accordance with our adopted Local Plan.

We believe this is an exciting opportunity and would suit an experienced individual looking for a new challenge, the opportunity to shape the future of the bay and deliver regeneration, and enjoy a good work-life balance in a scenic and beautiful part of the UK.
