An exciting opportunity has arisen in the planning department of Torbay Council for a Planning Enforcement Officer. We are looking for a Planning Enforcement Officer to work in our fast paced, innovative and supportive planning team, where you will be working across Torquay, Paignton and Brixham investigating alleged breaches of planning control and taking action to remedy them.
Torbay is a stunning coastal location set in South Devon and is close to Dartmoor National Park as well as being in easy reach of both Plymouth City and Exeter City with links to the M5. This is a beautiful location in which to live and work so getting that work/life balance is in easy reach. Torbay Council has serious ambitions to build on the regeneration and investment already happening in the Bay, so this role will give the right applicant all the job satisfaction they would need.
Previous experience of Planning Enforcement or Development Management is essential. Experience in other regulatory/investigatory functions would also be relevant. We believe this is an exciting opportunity that would suit an individual who is used to working in a stimulating, customer focused environment and is looking for a new challenge.
Planning enforcement work can provide a good introduction into a career in planning where support is given to those looking to progress.
If you would like an informal discussion on the post, please contact Wendy Ormsby, Service Manager – Development Management, on 07780 227602.
