Major Projects Officer
The South Downs National Park offers a distinctive and fulfilling environment in which to develop your career. As one of the largest planning authorities in the country with an area covering over 100 miles from the edge of Winchester to Eastbourne, and over 5,000 applications a year, it is easy to see why this is such a challenging but rewarding environment.
The unique nature of the South Downs National Park, due to its size and scale and the number of large settlements within its boundaries (including Lewes and Petersfield), offers the opportunity to work on a wide variety of major planning applications and other projects.
Working in our Major Projects Team, you will manage a case load of some of the most important and complex planning applications in the National Park as well as providing planning advice to our organisation and others in order to help drive major projects forward (including helping with the identification and delivery of projects through the spending of the Authority’s Community Infrastructure Levy).
We need a dedicated and experienced town planner with the knowledge and skills to deal with a wide variety of challenging applications and projects in a sensitive landscape.
Does this sound like a new and varied challenge for you? Do you believe you can add real value to the job? If you do and if you meet the person specification, then we look forward to receiving your application.
