I am currently working with a Local Authority based in Somerset who are looking to bring on an experienced Planning Technician. This is an initial 3 month contract, very likely to be extended.
The Council are looking for the appropriate person to have experience validating planning applications including checking submissions against national and local checklists and relevant guidance. You will be involved with checking accuracy of the drawings submitted and identifying statutory and non-statutory consultees. You will be expected to provide information, guidance and advice as required to Councilors, applicants, developers and their agents, members of the public, local organisations and other Council departments on a wide range of planning matters.
This is a 3 month rolling contract, should everything go well you are very likely to be extended. The rate is under negotiation at this time.
The council need the right person to start as soon as possible. Therefore they are looking to interview this week. If you are interested in this position, do not hesitate to contact Amy.
