Planning demands from big urban extensions involving thousands of new homes have prompted Central Bedfordshire Council to seek a new principal planning officer.
The authority is seeking a principal planning officer to tackle large projects and oversee the delivery of major development initiatives.
Major applications manager Jennie Selley told Planning: “We have several large urban extensions coming through the system.
“These include Houghton Regis, for which we've just granted outline permission for 5,000 dwellings.”
Houghton Regis forms part of the Luton-Dunstable conurbation and is situated about 37 miles north of London.
Selley said a second tranch of development would include 2,000 homes, while another site, Arlesey, is set for 1,000 dwellings.
