South Norfolk District Council is looking to take on a senior conservation and design architect.

The council said it is dealing with major growth proposals in the area and the new post would help implement adopted and emerging planning policies, including the council’s recently adopted South Norfolk Place Making Guide.

“Realignment of the service last October resulted in the creation of two multidisciplinary teams with a focus on creating a project-management approach to planning proposals,” said director of growth and localism Tim Horspole.

“The service covers pre-application negotiations resulting in quicker and better decisions that reflect the council’s corporate priorities and in particular the growth agenda.”

He said the senior conservation and design architect was a “key post” in the new structure. This post would lead or work as a member of one or more development teams.

“These will shape proposals for major growth from the pre-application stage and take proposals through the planning application process.

“The post holder will advise on matters regarding design, listed buildings and conservation areas in the context of national and local policy.”
