Carrington West are assisting their local authority client based in the South West of England in the search for a Senior/Principal Planning Officer to join their Development Management team in the Town Planning department on an initial 6 month contract. The post will be on a fully remote basis with many of the applications able to be determined remotely, however, the odd site visit may be necessary.
My client is looking for someone to deal with a mixed caseload of Urban and Rural applications including majors up to 30 houses.

It would be beneficial to hold a Post-graduate degree in planning, regeneration or a related discipline, and have the eligibility for membership of RTPI.
Interviews are to be scheduled ASAP so please do not hesitate to get in touch if this post is of interest.
