East Hampshire District Council has expanded by recruiting a new planning policy officer.
Kevin Thurlow has joined the council as planning policy officer from Eastleigh Borough Council where he carried out the same role.
He takes the council's policy team up to six chartered town planners.
Planning policy team manager Victoria Potts told Planning: "Kevin will be focusing on the detailed management policy.
"We have our joint core strategy in place and are waiting for our examiners report, so at this stage it's more detailed policy that is driving the agenda".
