Be a part of creating a community of the future in this exciting opportunity to help lead a unique project in north Essex.

We're looking for a Planning Manager to join the Tendring Colchester Borders Garden Community project to lead a team to bring forward this significant new development. One of the larger projects of its kind in the country, the Tendring Colchester Borders Garden Community will see 7,500 - 8,000 new homes created over the next 30-40 years, along with all the necessary infrastructure to create a quality place of life for future generations.

You'll lead a team of planning and technical officers to consider and advance planning matters. You'll work alongside officers from Tendring, Colchester and Essex Councils, as well as working closely with the developers, private sector partners, Town and Parish Councils, consultants, community groups and other stakeholders.

You'll play a key role in advancing the coordination and preparation of a joint Development Plan Document (DPD) alongside a comprehensive masterplanning exercise, involving community engagement, and ensuring that the DPD is prepared in line with all statutory and legal processes and requirements. You'll lead engagement with the developers initially through pre-application stages, and then into the consideration and determination of planning applications on the site.

If you are an experienced planner (or related subject), have good leadership and people skills, an understanding of Local Authority procedures and want to help shape a community of the future, then we want to hear from you.

This role will work for the three partner councils for the Tendring Colchester Borders Garden Community project - but if you'd like an informal chat please contact Gary Guiver, Director of Planning at Tendring District Council on 01255 686173.
