Senior Strategic Planning Officer
£36,371 – £40,578
It is an exciting time to work at Peterborough City Council. With a new Chief Executive and a new Executive Director, we are taking a fresh look at what we do, and how we do it. We are gearing up to start work on a brand new Local Plan, and there has never been a better time to join us, as you will have the opportunity to shape the future, from the very start of the process.
Currently, we are keeping our skills and knowledge fresh, through collaborating with our neighbours to help them with their own local plans and Neighbourhood Planning support services. You will have the opportunity to work in a variety of different places, taking different approaches, but each one is making good progress to make places better, more prosperous places to live and work.
We are seeking a senior planner to join our busy and friendly planning policy team to help with the preparation of key Council policy documents. We are looking for an experienced and capable planning professional who can exercise initiative and work independently to help deliver our diverse and exciting policy service.
To complement the existing skills set in the team, we are particularly seeking applications from candidates who can demonstrate relevant experience in either supporting local communities in the production of neighbourhood plans or practical experience in implementing a site selection and assessment process for site allocations as part of delivering a Local Plan. A working knowledge of GIS to support this skill set would also add value to your contribution to the work of the team.
If you think this sounds like something you would enjoy doing, please do get in touch, and we can tell you all about the exciting and varied work that the team does.

Closing date: 14 August 2022.
We are proud to serve the diverse communities of Cambridgeshire/Peterborough and want our workforce to reflect this diversity, which we believe is beneficial for our employees, the organisation and the communities we serve.
