South Holland District Council is currently looking for enthusiastic and dynamic Planning Policy Officer to join its Planning Policy team, which forms part of the South East Lincolnshire Joint Policy Unit (JPU), working with Boston Borough Council. The South East Lincolnshire Local Plan is soon to be adopted, and the successful candidate will join at an important time for the Council as it moves forward with implementation and delivering the growth ambitions set out in the plan.

The current priority is to support the delivery of a number of key tasks following the adoption of the plan. The Planning Policy Officer will have an opportunity to lead on other key policy areas and be involved in other delivery initiatives.

Applicants will be qualified in planning or a related discipline which is recognised by the Royal Town Planning Institute, have a sound working knowledge of local government, and have knowledge of the Local Plan process and competent IT skills. The team is located in South Holland District Council's offices but the successful candidates will need to work closely with Boston colleagues as and when appropriate, including relevant travel.

If you are looking for your next move then this is a great opportunity to take your next step at a forward-looking authority where there is a genuine commitment to delivering outstanding services.
