Growing public interest in creating neighbourhood plans has prompted Wellingborough Borough Council of to look to recruit a new neighbourhood planning officer.

Planning policy and regeneration manager Victoria Phillipson told Planning: “We need to support our parishes and local areas with their neighbourhood plans.

“Larger villages are progressing their plans and the smaller villages are now starting to consider them, so we are recruiting to deal with the extra work."

The authority is looking to recruit a neighbourhood planning officer to join two other planners in planning policy to advise and support communities in the development of their plans.
