If you thrive on action, you will love Dartford.  Working for an ambitious authority that is well and truly on the map, no two days will be the same.  Located on the edge of London, Dartford is a Borough of two halves: significant growth and regeneration in the north, with Green Belt and strong constraints on development in the south.  We have exciting proposals to transform Dartford Town centre, major riverside development and a range of employment, leisure and residential schemes coming forward. We have a 5 Year Housing Land Supply in place and are meeting the Housing Delivery Test.

We need an extra pair of hands to help us with a focus on protecting our Green Belt, although some urban work may be involved as well.  A strong planning input is needed for our enforcement work, supporting our enforcement officers in providing planning advice and input at appeals.  We also need help with a range of small but complex applications.

We are looking for a seasoned Planner with solid experience, a good understanding of Planning law and an ability and willingness to undertake assessment of complex planning histories.   

The successful applicant will join a professional, experienced and efficient team which is ambitious in striving for positive outcomes.  We have a mutually supportive and sociable team culture. Development Management, Planning Policy and Planning Administration are well integrated with each other and striving to achieve common goals.  

Closing date: Monday, 7 January 2019

Interviews will be held on Thursday, 17 January 2019

22 hours per week.  Flexi-time available.  Free parking
