PRINCIPAL PLANNING OFFICER – MAJOR PROJECTS

£42,403 - £45,441 (plus a current market supplement of £1,105)

Interested in shaping one of the fastest growing towns in the Midlands?

We are looking for an exceptional and dynamic planner to assist in leading our growth agenda.

Rugby is one of the fastest growing towns in the country and is set to grow by 30% by 2035. Located in the county of Warwickshire, near the cities of Coventry and Leicester, with direct rail links to London and Birmingham and within “the golden triangle” of the strategic road network, Rugby’s accessibility is one of the key attributes making it a great place to live and work.

This is an exciting opportunity to play a key part in the growth of Rugby Borough with large developments in two sustainable urban extensions (Houlton and South West Rugby), high quality employment and technology sites such as Ansty Park and the exciting regeneration of Rugby Town Centre. There is also plenty of diversity in the workload not only through the major schemes that you will be leading on but the other key features of our Borough including the rolling Warwickshire countryside much of which is Green Belt and significant heritage and cultural work preserving the birthplace of the game of Rugby.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and driven professional to lead the sustainable urban extensions in particular, whilst also leading project teams for major schemes.

You will need to have a relevant degree or equivalent qualification, significant experience of development management as well as an understanding of planning policy and project management techniques.

A driving license and access to a car for business use is essential.

Our offices are located in Rugby Town Centre and there is also the opportunity to work from home for some of the time during the working week.
