Salary: Grade 6: £22,462 - £24,313
Closing date: 29 September 2019
Located on the Lancashire coast, with Preston, Blackpool and the Lake District nearby, Wyre is an area of great contrast and includes urban areas, seaside resorts, a port, traditional market towns and picturesque villages within an extensive rural area that includes part of the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The combination of such a diverse area and high development pressures present an interesting and challenging mix of urban and rural planning and regeneration issues.
We are looking to recruit a full time Planning Enforcement Officer to join our Development Management team. Dealing with reports of breaches of planning control, e.g. work carried out without planning permission or not in accordance with approved plans, you will carry out site and desk based investigations, including interviews.
Ideally with knowledge or experience in planning and/or law enforcement, you will be a confident communicator and use your qualities of tact and diplomacy to liaise with the public, developers, and other Council officers, reach agreements where possible and on occasions present evidence at appeals and in court. With previous experience of delivering high performance standards, you will have a clear understanding of the relationship between corporate priorities and the delivery of a high quality service to our customers.
In return we can offer you a salary up to £24,313, up to 28 days annual leave plus all bank holidays (pro rata), great work life balance with flexible working arrangements, employer pension contribution, free onsite parking, discounted gym membership, access to occupational health and wellbeing services and a supportive workplace culture.
