Tarmac has a fantastic opportunity for a Strategic Planning Manager to join Tarmac’s L&NR Team, primarily operating within London, the South East and East Anglia region.

Here at Tarmac, we are working hard to create a dynamic and inclusive environment and it’s important that our people come from a variety of different backgrounds, therefore prior technical experience isn’t always necessary for success.

  • Discuss development proposals for sites with local planning authorities and other relevant bodies, through formal or informal pre-application routes
  • Engage with stakeholders to develop long term relationships and participate in public pre-application events in order to engage with local communities

  • If required, submit planning appeals and manage the appeal process
  • Engage with and keep landowners and/or agents informed of progress in line with contractual obligations
  • Assist the wider Land and Natural Resources team and the Operational business in the identification of new land opportunities and assist in acquiring the site under an option at suitable terms
