A local authority in Essex has expanded its service to help it deal with strategic planning policy matters.
Castle Point Borough Council recruited Andrea Pearson as a planning policy officer from Harlow Council.
Planning policy and support manager Anne Clitheroe told Planning: "Andrea will deal with strategic planning at a time when we are preparing a new draft local plan."
Pearson works with Clitheroe in planning policy. The team includes three development control officers, two enforcement officers, one chief development control officer and two planning technicians.
