I am currently working exclusively with an excellent private consultancy based in Somerset who are looking for a Planning Consultant to join the team on a full time, permanent basis. The planning team currently comprises 4 No. MRTPI members of staff, including Planning Directors and Associate.

Main duties of the role will include-
  • Preparation of a varied range of planning applications including outline, full and reserved matters applications, prior notifications, certificate of lawful use and discharge of planning conditions, including writing supporting documents such as planning statements and statements of community involvement etc.
  • Submission of representations to local planning authorities in relation to emerging planning policy documents.
  • Attending and speaking at public meetings on behalf of the client, such as parish council meetings, local authority committee meetings and public consultation events (public meetings are often held outside of normal working hours, in the evening and, the successful applicant will be expected to attend such meetings where reasonable).

Ideally the suitable candidate will live locally. The directors are happy to accommodate a level of home working although they would like at least 3 days in the office.

The successful candidate will possess a degree in town planning with eligibility for membership of the Royal Town Planning Institute, at least two years post qualification experience either in the private sector or local government (preferably within development - management) and a valid UK driving licence.
