Team Leader (Implementation Team)
The Planning Applications Team is high performing despite a substantial and complex work load of applications of all types.

Some of our key sites include the Garden Village at Long Marston Airfield, Stratford’s South-Western Relief Road, the new settlement at Gaydon/Lighthorne Heath and Stratford-upon-Avon’s Canal Quarter Regeneration Area.
The successful candidate will be responsible for providing day-to-day support and supervision, and take line management responsibility, for a team of Senior Planners.
You will be expected to show enthusiasm, drive and a proven ability to take a positive approach to development. You will also have extensive contact with District Councillors and Parish Councils.
