You don’t have to look hard for inspiration in Eden – it’s all around you.

Our district is home to some of Cumbria’s most stunning landscapes and the 2019 Halifax Quality of Life survey rated Eden in the top five places to live in the UK. It could be the ideal backdrop for your career.

We are looking to recruit two Planning Officers who can deliver excellent results and play an integral part of an evolving and innovative Council which is forward thinking and embracing new opportunities through technology and transformation.

The posts will help deal with a growth in workload across Development Management and to achieve the Council’s ambitions in regards to sustainable growth, climate change and biodiversity gain. Development has a key role to play in this regard and the Planning Service is at the forefront of leading this exciting period of change across the district.

You will be an enthusiastic, dynamic and proactive person, who can handle a caseload of planning applications, pre application files and planning enforcement files. As part of the supportive, hard-working and motivated Development Management team you should have previous experience of working in planning, have excellent communication skills and be able to manage and prioritise your workload to meet deadlines.

You will hold a degree in town planning or a related discipline. You should be eligible for membership of the RTPI and be able to demonstrate experience of dealing with a range of planning issues through planning policy or development management work.

There is an essential car user allowance of up to £963 per annum and a relocation package of up to £5,125 may also be available.
