The South Downs National Park offers a distinctive and fulfilling environment in which to develop your career. As one of the largest planning authorities in the country with an area covering over 100 miles from the edge of Winchester to Eastbourne, and over 5,000 applications a year, it is easy to see why this is such a challenging but rewarding environment.

The unique nature of the South Downs National Park, due to its size and scale and the number of large settlements within its boundaries (including Lewes and Petersfield), offers the opportunity to work on a wide variety of major planning applications and other projects.

We need a dedicated and experienced town planner with the knowledge and skills to deal with a wide variety of challenging applications and projects in a sensitive landscape.

Does this sound like a new and varied challenge for you? Do you believe you can add real value to the job? If you do and if you meet the person specification, then we look forward to receiving your application.

The South Downs National Park officially came into being on 31 March 2010. However, the idea of a National Park in the South Downs can be traced all the way back to 1929. In 2016 the National Park was granted International Dark Sky Reserve status, making it one of the best places in the country to view the night sky. Today, we are one of only 16 such Reserves in the world.
