Job Details

Planning Development Manager
Salary: £49,788 - £52,737
Working Hours: 37
Employment Type: Permanent

There has never been a more exciting time to join Gloucester City Council as a senior leader in our Place Service. During the past 12 months during the most challenging of times, we have made excellent progress in developing an ambitious Local Plan which provides the spatial blueprint for driving the regeneration of our City.

At the heart of the regeneration programme is the £100m development at The Forum, a mixed use, sustainable community in the centre of our historic City. We will also embrace the challenge we face in a post Covid-19 world of transforming our City Centre from one based on a traditional retail to one that is repopulated with residents, workers and visitors enjoying a variety of experiences throughout the day and night.

As Planning Development Manager you will play a leading role in delivering these ambitions working alongside like-minded and dedicated professionals.

We are seeking someone who understands the concept of taking a development team approach to major projects, who is confident to engage developers and partners in the early stages of design, and who leads by example in meeting customers' high expectations.

This is a high profile role which will need to successfully manage the often conflicting demands of planning policy, regeneration needs and market expectations. You will act as an ambassador for the City in general and the City Council in particular working with and alongside a range of stakeholders and partners to ensure the effective delivery of a high-quality place-shaping development management service.

If successful you will be joining a talented, supportive and ambitious team at the City Council.

In return, you can look forward to an impressive package of benefits and an organisation committed to celebrating the diversity of our workforce. An organisation where in a recent survey, 90% of staff would recommend as a great place to work.

Gloucester City Council leads the way in agile working and although the post will be based in Gloucester City Centre, working from home or other remote locations is actively supported.

We know that together, we can achieve the best for our community. Your career aspirations are important to us. We want to know what matters to you.

This is a politically restricted post
