Conservation Officer

We are currently working with a local authority on the South Coast, who are looking for a Conservation Officer to provide Conservation advice to their development management team.

  • Provide expert advice to Planning Officers on all matters in respect of Conservation, Listed Buildings and Heritage Assets.
