You will contribute towards the planning, design and creation of the masterplans and design frameworks and infrastructure delivery plans to make our key strategic sites a reality. You will be asked to lead on the planning stages, coordinate across the Council’s services the infrastructure requirements to help shape and realise the strategic housing
and mixed-use sites.
You must demonstrate sound knowledge of current planning legislation and associated guidance in your application; have good interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills; listening, and negotiation skills; an ability to accept responsibility and work constructively within a small team; an ability to organise and prioritise own workload; and competence in working in a digital environment.
