Contract Type
Full Time
An experienced Town Planner is required to join a reputable and thriving care home developer. It's a great opportunity to join this close-knit and well-respected planning team.
Based in Garforth, Leeds, you will already be an experienced Town Planner with a background in either a private or public sector setting, working for a consultancy, local authority, developer or land promoter.
About the role:
The position will involve managing planning project work in-house, as part of the team. This will involve initial site appraisals and evaluation; preparation of written reports and statements and submission of all planning application documentation. It will also involve meeting and negotiating with Planning Officer's and any/all parties involved in the application processes and being involved in Planning Committee and Appeal situations, as required.
As a result, you will need to be at a stage in your career where you are ready to take ownership of projects - 18 months professional planning experience is therefore the minimum, and ideally you will have more. Whatever your current skill set, you will be offered comprehensive training and support to develop skills and experience in areas where you have not yet had much exposure.
About you:
??Upwards of 18 months experience in a town planning role;
??High standards of written and verbal communication;
??Ambitious, self-motivated but also a genuine team player;
??A keen interest in the full land and planning process
??Full UK driving licence
