Head of Planning 

An exciting opportunity has arisen to head up the Planning Service in Hull following the retirement of the current postholder.  You will be responsible for leading the review of the 2017 Local Plan.  In the last decade Hull has seen unprecedented levels of investment bringing over £6billion of investment into the city.  This has included record levels of housing delivered, £0.5billion of investment from Siemens Gamesa and £0.5billion from the University of Hull. Reckitt opened their global R&D facility in the last 5 years, not to mention the success of City of Culture.  Positive change is occurring, and we want you to ensure this continues.

You will lead the city’s next stage of transformation and play a pivotal role in continuing the city’s journey through devolution with our neighbours the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and leading on the development and implementation of a City Centre Masterplan. We are looking for a strong leader to continue the planning services success in providing high quality development which has secured employment and training provision for the city.
