Maidstone Borough Council is looking to expand its planning team with up to three new appointments to help it boost economic development and regeneration.
Development manager James Bailey told Planning: “We have seen an ongoing upsurge in workloads and need to consolidate the department by recruiting more permanent staff.
“We have an investment budget of £6m and provision for regeneration projects of £1.8m this year. We need a mix of new staff at junior and senior levels."
Major recent projects includes Park Wood, a regeneration project involving nearly 200 new homes, a shopping area and community facilities (pictured).
The council is looking to recruit planning officers to increase its development management team of 10 part and full-time planners.
