Are you passionate about delivering quality new places?  Then read on, this might be the role you have been waiting for. The Councils Local Plan is about to undergo examination and we are already starting the work involved to support an ambitious programme of development in the District.  Over 16,000 new homes are to be delivered, along with all the supporting infrastructure, in a range of significant urban expansions.

At Gilston, north of Harlow, we have successfully bid for Garden Town funding with our partners, and are looking to deliver a new and extended community there of 10,000 new homes.  With all that, and town centre investment schemes promoted by developers and the Council, there will be no dull moments for you in this post.

You will lead a team of 10 planning officers, all operating at a senior level, on these projects and a range of other major development work.  You will lead, support and challenge your team, driving them and yourself, to ensure that quality outcomes are achieved.  You will not be waiting for things to happen, you will be making them happen, motivating others, cooperating with partners, leading them and identifying innovative ways of delivering outcomes. 

You will work directly with the head of service and have regular contact with the Councils senior managers and politicians, all of which are committed to the delivery of this ambitious programme. All necessary training and support will be provided.

Ultimately, the clue is in the job title, this post is about enabling the delivery of Quality Places.

Our office base is in Hertford, conveniently located for transport routes and the town centre.  As well as the attractive salary, the Council offers a range of other benefits including free parking, car mileage payments, contributory pension, concessionary discounts on leisure, sports and cultural activities and a generous leave allowance.
