Suffolk coastSuffolk County Council is looking to expand its planning service to tackle growing demand for infrastructure and work for public services.

Planning strategy manager James Cutting told Planning: “We are seeing rising and varied workloads involving housing, transport, education and public health."

The county council is looking to recruit two career grade planners to work across policy and development management and expand the existing team totalling 14 planners.

"We have a varied workload and think the best approach is to seek new blood in the form of graduates that may or may not have studied planning.

"The new recruits will work on a diverse range of projects in one of the most attractive parts of the country, with interesting planning challenges", said Cutting.
