Would you like to help plan for the future of the Borough of Great Yarmouth?

Great Yarmouth is a leading holiday resort on the edge of the Broads National Park. The area has relatively modest housing costs, a stunning coastline to enjoy, and is within easy reach of the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Norwich

Now is an exciting time to join the Strategic Planning Team at the Council.  The Council is working on an ambitious programme of regeneration and development, from which there are challenges ranging from Seafront and Town Centre regeneration to addressing brownfield site development.  The Council’s Local Plan Part 2 is currently going through examination and we will be shortly commencing a full review of the Local Plan. 

With issues as diverse as town centre and economic regeneration, coastal change, internationally protected habitats and flood risk, Great Yarmouth is the perfect place to start or develop your career in planning.    You will help us by undertaking research, helping to draft planning policy documents including the Local Plan and explaining complex issues to a variety of audiences.  You will also have an active role in strategic projects and in partnerships with a wide range of organisations. 

We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed individual who can work well both collaboratively and alone.  The role is a career-graded post so we would welcome applications from both experienced planners and from new graduates in Town and Country Planning or related disciplines (such as Geography) who are interested in becoming a professional planner.   

In return we offer a friendly and supportive working environment with opportunities for training and development. We offer a superb package of benefits including generous holiday entitlement, flexible working, payment of RTPI subscription fees and membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme.

For an informal discussion about this post please contact Sam Hubbard, Strategic Planning Manager on 01493 846624 or Nick Fountain, Senior Strategic Planner on 01493 846626
