Principal Planning Officer

We are currently working with a local authority in the Hertfordshire area, who are looking to take on a Principal Planner for an initial 3-month contract, though this is highly likely to be extended beyond this.

The role would have you dealing with major applications alongside potentially signing off reports prepared by other planners (though if you would rather just work on a caseload this is feasible).

Ideally, they are looking for someone full time, though reduced hours can be negotiated, and they will allow home working or a compressed hours arrangement.

The local authority is rural with urban pockets with a lot of complex and interesting applications at present. The role would require someone with a wealth of experience in the planning field.

If you would like more information, please get in touch with Sean at, or 020 3795 4828.

More widely, if you an experienced or qualified planner considering a career change, or you would like some advice on your CV, or what your next best step would be, we would love to hear from you. We do not advertise all of our posts.
