This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in delivering the infrastructure that the community needs.

As part of the Strategic & Local Planning Team you will be responsible for:

The Council recognise the importance and benefits of infrastructure delivery to the local community, so we have created this new post to ensure the growing portfolio of Section 106 planning agreements and the financial contributions received from developers will continue to be well managed into the future.

We are looking for someone with a positive, dynamic and ‘can-do’ outlook that is able to manage databases and work with partners to get results.
