We are an ambitious, growth focused organisation with commitments to healthy place-shaping and climate action.

We have three urban areas all with planned growth situated within the Oxford-Cambridge Arc.
We are looking for a high-quality candidate to manage our busy Planning Policy, Conservation & Design Service. Having recently adopted a Partial Review of our Local Plan, our Planning Policy Team has commenced work on a new, district-wide review. We are a partner in the production of the Oxfordshire Plan 2050 working closely with neighbouring authorities. Our Conservation & Design Team is engaged with Development Briefs, a rolling programme of Conservation Area appraisals and consultation casework.
