Do you want to work for a Planning Authority in a superb world-class location, with an excellent quality of life, that also has an outstanding record of achievement? In recent years we have won the RTPI Silver Jubilee Cup three times for our Planning achievements, including most recently the 2019 award.  We have also won Planning Authority of the year from both the RTPI and Planning Resource along with numerous other planning achievement awards. Plymouth is gearing up for the Mayflower 400 Celebrations next year, so come and join us for these! 

We have just adopted a ground breaking Joint Local Plan with South Hams and West Devon, and we have an outstanding record of customer service in Development Management with exceptional performance in dealing with the full range of planning applications over the last three years.  Therefore, our standards are very high, but the professional rewards are enormous. Plymouth has an ambitious growth agenda, and you will have the opportunity to help the City develop and flourish.

We are looking for an experienced RTPI qualified Development Management officer who will deal with some of the largest and most strategic planning applications in the city within the newly formed Area Planning Team or the established Strategic Growth Team.  You will need to demonstrate both the ability to deal with complex minor and major planning applications and, equally as important, an excellent approach to customer service and delivery.
