This role offers an exciting opportunity to be a very important part of an energetic team of Service Managers. You will lead the Council’s high achieving Planning section and have overall responsibility for Development Control, Planning Policy and Local Land Charges.
As a founding member of the Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP, at ESBC we are positive about planning and the opportunities that can be captured through managing change.

This is a very exciting role in a fast moving environment but it is much more than managing great bunch of high-performing staff and delivering excellent services.
