Colchester Borough Council is working with partners to develop an innovative approach to planning to help us deliver a new sustainable community to the east of the town straddling the boundary with the adjacent authority of Tendring District Council.
The Council has a position available for a full-time planner who is experienced, creative and energetic to help produce a Development Plan Document for this new community. Garden community principles will be embedded in the plan. Your involvement will help us ensure that these principles are tailored to the needs of both existing communities and new residents to provide a cohesive and place-specific framework for much needed new homes as well as new schools, a rapid transit system, employment opportunities and extensive areas of open space and community infrastructure. This role will be key to moving forward with the next stages of planning for this exciting new sustainable community.
If you would like to have an informal discussion about the role please contact Laura Chase, Planning Policy Manager on 01206 282473.
