Rochdale Borough Council is looking to expand its planning team to tackle a jump in projects involving employment and housing land.
Assistant director Mark Robinson told Planning: "We are seeing significant growth in applications and need to expand the service to deal with the applications.
"We have ambitions on housing growth and are about to adopt a core strategy with higher housing requirements then previously consulted on.
"We are also dealing with a lot of employment growth and want to release land for projects that create jobs."
The council wants to expand its development management team which currently numbers six planners by recruiting a new senior planning officer.
“Rochdale borough forms part of the Greater Manchester city region and is experiencing significant economic growth and urban renewal,” said Robinson, including a £100m redevelopment of the town centre (pictured).
