We are currently working with a local authority based in the East Midlands area, who are looking to take on a Principal Planner for an initial 6-month contract, but this is highly likely to roll on for a considerable length of time. This role will involve:
  • The processing of major planning applications, including speculative residential applications in the countryside (so some recent rural planning experience is ideal)
  • Undertaking consultations in accordance with statutory and local requirements.
  • Carrying out site inspections.
  • Negotiating and communicating with applicants, agents and consultees.
  • Advising members of the public, parish councils and District Councillors.
  • Assessing proposals in line with national and local planning policies and guidance and all other material considerations (including representations made by consultees).
  • Preparing reports and making recommendations on delegated planning applications and to Planning Committees.
  • Issuing decision notices in accordance with the statutory and other procedures of the department including incorporating conditions and where necessary reasons for refusal.
  • Providing written and verbal advice on development management to members of the public, developers, Parish Councils, District Councillors and others.


The council are looking for a Principal Planner with recent experience working in a local authority on major planning applications. The area is a mix of both rural and urban, therefore you will need to be able to drive for site visits.
