Job Details

With the increased pressure on Local Authorities and their Town Planning teams to meet housing targets, it can sometimes be easy to overlook other matters, such as important local buildings, nature reserves and the heritage of an area. That’s where you, the Conservation Officer, comes in.

“Conservation is a state of harmony between men and the land” – Aldo Leopard

The Local Authorities we work with in Nottinghamshire are looking for Conservation Officers to join their teams. As well as protecting local conservation areas and listed buildings, you will have one of the most varied roles in the whole of Planning.

As a Conservation Officer, you will be…

  • Assessing applications for Listed Building Consent
  • Delivering a feasibility report for a highway improvement scheme
  • Advising on planning permission for development in Conservation areas
  • Working on Heritage led regeneration schemes
  • Drafting and presenting reports to include Heritage Strategies, Statements of Significance, and Conservation Management Plans
  • Act as an expert witness at Appeals

If you have highways and maintenance experience this is desired.

Our clients really appreciate when candidates have previous experience in a rural Local Authority and are chartered members of the IHBC, but the experience is key and some authorities will gladly help you work towards a chartership.

The authorities can be flexible in terms of working arrangements and home working. They might be able to offer you a compressed week or several days a week from home. IR35 status of roles is determined on a case by case basis and pay rates are dependent upon experience and completion of an interview.

“What do I need to do next?”
