Want to work at a place where:

  4. You are in a high-tech town with regional class leisure facilities, offering everything from indoor skydiving to stand-up comedy? 
  5. There are lots of challenges and opportunities?

 
Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council are seeking an enthusiastic, positive, and proactive person, with a real customer focus, to join our Planning Compliance and Enforcement Team.  

Working at a senior level within the Planning Compliance and Enforcement Team you will play a key role in delivering an effective development management and enforcement service covering all unauthorised developments relating to the Planning Acts and for ensuring that development is carried out in accordance with approved plans.

You will be responsible for managing complex compliance and enforcement cases, planning applications and appeals related to, or as a result of, enforcement investigations.  You will also need to be a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual, a good team player, with excellent communication and customer focus skills.
 
Within easy reach of London, Basingstoke is a fast paced, vibrant and modern town with many successful businesses, surrounded by picturesque villages and set in the stunning Hampshire countryside. The area includes Highclere Castle, the setting of TV’s Downton Abbey.  

There are activities for every interest, including an international concert hall, a regional shopping centre, indoor sky-diving centre and impressive sports and leisure facilities.  Based at the Civic Offices in Basingstoke, near to the Top of Town, you would report directly to the Principal Enforcement and Compliance Officer.  
 
As a Council we go beyond; we are bold, we go the extra mile, we like to say yes, we are one council, we nurture, and we do things differently.

Making a difference to the people we serve really makes a difference to us.
