We are currently working with an East Midlands based Local Planning Authority to source a Senior to Principal level Policy Planner to aide the council in moving from an emerging spatial strategy to a preferred policy plan. The hiring manager has asked me to make it clear that much of the primary 'thinking' has already been formulated and this isn't a role of 'responsibility' - the successful contractor would be lending a hand to the secondary thinking on the interim policy plan.

The vacancy will be for an initial 6 months with potential for extension and the council are offering a competitive rate in line with the successful contractor's experience.

Duties of the role include but are not limited to:
  • Carry out consultations on the local plan and other planning policy documents including attendance at exhibitions and meetings
  • Carry out research as part of your work on the preparation of the local plan and any other policy documents
  • Prepare draft sections of the local plan, supplementary planning documents and papers, and reports on them and other planning policy issues, including consultation documents for officers and members
  • Assist and oversee the production of documents making up the local plan
  • Provide professional advice and training on planning policy and development matters to the public, Members and other professionals
  • Prepare and present evidence supporting the council's cases at examinations
  • Assist in the supervision of the work of junior planning or technical officers
  • Prepare statutory and non-statutory supporting documents
  • Conduct member briefings


I appreciate that this a brief summary; if you would like any further information on the role the local authority you would be working for, do give me a call or drop me an email, alex@park-avenue.co.uk, or 020 3795 4832.
