Senior Planner

£34,075 to £39,753 per annum

We are offering an exciting and challenging opportunity for a dynamic and highly motivated Senior Planner to help initiate a review of our Local Plan. It is a pivotal time to be joining a forward thinking and friendly team at Dover District Council with major investment driving regeneration, an ambitious house building programme, and transformational master planning for key town centre and waterfront developments that are now coming forward in the District. 

As a Senior Policy Planner you will provide professional planning policy expertise to the Council's Local Plan Review together with the preparation of supplementary planning documents. You will also provide policy input to our housing, infrastructure, and regeneration strategies. This is a hands on role with the ability for the right candidate to be involved in some really unique town planning projects. The Senior Policy Planner will take up the challenge to lead on key studies that will underpin the Local Plan and be responsible for shaping and creating a new Local Plan from day one through to the eventual examination in public. You will be working in one of the most dynamic and inspirational planning environments in the south east and alongside a friendly multi-disciplinary team encompassing planning policy, heritage, green infrastructure/ecology and S106 contributions. In return we will offer you a carer graded salary, flexible working hours and even pay for your RTPI professional planning fees!
