Enfield’s Planning Service - looking for talented Planners to help shape Enfield’s future.

Enfield is the first London borough to be awarded £156m funding from the Government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund to unlock development growth in our borough; and this is just one part of the ambitious plans that we are developing to shape Enfield’s future. We are energised and passionate about quality place making and the role that planners can have in helping deliver this.

We’re are looking for exceptional candidates to make a contribution to our newly formed Planning Service, that brings together Development Management and Strategic Planning and Design to lead both new strategic policy and help guide projects through the planning process to delivery.

There’s more than one reason why we believe Enfield is a great place to live and work and why it has such an exciting future. Our attractive historic market town boasts a prime location with great transport links into central London. We host a myriad of assets from great green spaces, cultural venues and countryside including the Lee Valley Regional Park, a high performing industrial economy and a range of sites and opportunities for future development, growth and placemaking.

Enfield’s Planning Service is building its capacity to help deliver circa 30,000 new homes  through Enfield’s New Local Plan 2036,  area-wide regeneration and  high quality planning, design and heritage service to ensure successful placemaking and regeneration.   

We want to hear from applicants who can contribute positively to the Planning Service's culture and exciting programme of work.

A fully committed professional that can drive forward area and place-based Local Plan polices, Area Plans, Masterplans and Neighbourhood Planning, the Area Plans Manager will join the Plan Making Team as we embark on a range of exciting planning and regeneration schemes. The Area Plans Managers’ work will contribute to improving the lives of local residents and creating a great place to live, work and play through sustainable development, transport projects and improvements to the public realm.

Why it's great to work for Enfield Council:

  • An excellent pension through the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS).
  • Up to 31 days annual leave depending on grade and length of service. You will also get eight public holidays per year and an extra day off at Christmas.

  • Career development and learning experiences from a range of training courses and learning methods.
  • Employee Assistance Programme to provide advice and counselling services. This is a free and confidential service available to staff and members of their family.
  • Health and leisure discounts and tax-free bikes for work.

We are passionate about our people and how we deliver services to our community in Enfield. That’s why we encourage a culture that puts our customers at the heart of everything we do - by empowering our people to work together to find solutions, be open, honest and respectful, take responsibility and listen and learn. If you value these behaviours too, we’d love to hear from you - and of course we are always happy to talk flexible working, click here to find out more.
