A role has arisen in our Planning Service for an experienced Planner to work primarily on planning policy matters. You would be joining us just as we start the review of our development plan and this is an exciting role for anyone who would relish the opportunity to influence this from the start.

As well as all aspects of plan-making you will also be responsible for the preparation of other policy documents including Supplementary Planning Documents and Design Guides and Infrastructure Planning. You will also contribute to the development of wider Council strategies and work with neighbouring authorities on cross boundary strategic issues. Ideally you will be someone who has good experience of working in planning policy in a local authority environment.

We are a small team of planners and conservation specialists. You will also play an important role in the development management process, as we apply a development team approach to major planning applications and pre-application enquiries.

We are seeking someone who enjoys working as part of a team and someone who is committed to developing junior members of the team. We are friendly, supportive team that is committed to delivering a positive and responsive Planning service and we’d like you to share this vision.

RDC is an ambitious and forward thinking Council, resolute in our commitment to the communities of Ryedale. We are committed to delivering what matters for Ryedale by: prioritising and achieving sustainable growth, focusing on our customers and communities and demonstrating a ‘One Ryedale' approach.

The Council provides services for approximately 53,000 residents, local businesses and the many visitors to the area. The district encompasses beautiful countryside including the popular North York Moors National Park and Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Situated between Scarborough on the Yorkshire Coast and the historic City of York, Ryedale is a fantastic place to live and work. Our offices are based in the thriving market town of Malton - Yorkshire’s ‘Food Capital’, in walking distance from the train station and with free staff car parking.
