Salary: Grade 10: £45,859 – £47,839 (pro rata for hours worked)

This is an exciting time for Stevenage Borough Council, with its Local Plan having been adopted in 2019, its ambitious growth plans can start to be realised. A comprehensive town centre regeneration scheme is already underway, taking advantage of its ideal locational connections to London and the North via Thameslink, and new settlements on the edge of the town will soon become a reality.

We are looking for a Principal Planning Officer within the Planning Policy Team to take on the challenge of ensuring this growth can be delivered in an effective and sustainable way.

They will take the lead on maintaining strong relationships with local transport partners and bodies, to promote the interests of the Borough Council.

You will have the ability to communicate clearly and effectively with members of the public, colleagues and members, to work effectively with stakeholders, and the ability to analyse and formulate robust and effective planning and transport policies. Good written communication skills are essential.

As a proactive local authority that is keen to deliver new homes and jobs as soon as possible for its residents, and a supportive and friendly working environment, Stevenage Borough Council is a great place to work.
