Come and join our friendly team and help us to plan the future development of Adur District and Worthing Borough on the south coast. The planning officers for both Councils work together as one team to cover this area.

This is an exciting and challenging time as we have recently submitted the Worthing Local Plan for Examination and are about to commence a review of the Adur Local Plan. You will have an important role in helping to take these forward along with related documents and guidance.  We work in partnership with a variety of bodies and organisations which adds to the interest of our work. 

The Policy team is involved in a variety of work and you will be involved in several aspects of these including:

  • Housing delivery and monitoring
  • GIS Mapping
  • Sustainability and biodiversity
  • Economic regeneration

Ideally, you will have a town planning degree and some planning policy experience. You will need good numeracy and analytical skills and be a confident user of IT systems.  Good communication (both verbal & written) will be required as well as confidence in dealing with professionals and the public. We are looking for an enthusiastic planner who will fit into the existing team to help progress our Plans.

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Ian Moody or Moira Hayes on 01273 263009 or 01273 263247
