Transport Development Management Officer
£22,627 - £24,291
Do you care about the quality of the local environment? Would you prefer to see people travelling around the city in a more healthy and efficient way? Do you see new developments and think “… that could be so much better”? If any of this sounds familiar, we are waiting to hear from you.
The Transport Development Management team is committed to ensuring that new developments invest in safe and convenient walking, cycling and public transport access for our communities and we work closely with numerous other disciplines to make this happen. At the same time we must also resist and challenge development proposals that result in poor or unsafe environments and that fail to meet our commitment to tackling congestion and climate change.
We therefore need bright and talented individuals who can work within the development planning process to achieve our goal of becoming carbon neutral whilst being mindful of the ways in which our physical environment can improve social inclusion whilst enhancing our physical and mental health.
You will achieve this through negotiation with developers to secure transport investment whilst ensuring that new and existing streets are constructed within the parameters of our design, safety and maintenance requirements.
This role involves working closely with planners, developers, engineers and architects to ensure positive outcomes in relation to the transport requirements of development, and the fulfilment of BCC planning policy objectives in delivering a healthier Bristol.
You will be responsible for providing technical advice, assessment and recommendations on the transport and movement implications of small-medium sized development proposals. As you gain experience and grow within the team, you will pick up expertise in many different areas of traffic and transport and benefit from the training and support opportunities available to you whilst seeking to take on additional responsibility for larger development proposals as your experience increases over time.
