We are looking to recruit a Monitoring and Enforcement Officer who will be responsible for planning enforcement work, investigating and monitoring alleged breaches of planning legislation relating to a variety of sites.

You will need to develop and maintain strong relationships with colleagues, host authorities as well as complainants, applicants, professional agents, solicitors and the wider community as part of providing an efficient and responsive customer-focussed service.
The role involves communication in difficult circumstances, often with challenging, distressed or aggressive people, and you will need to remain alert to risk at all times as well as being able to deal with situations in a non-confrontational manner.
