This is an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic and experienced town planner to join the council’s busy planning service.

The council is one of the largest unitary authorities in England, with a strong track record of delivering high quality services on behalf of its residents.  The Planning Service deals with more than 6,500 planning applications and enquiries each year and is one of the busiest planning departments in the country (we were the thirteenth busiest planning department for minor applications and fifth busiest for major applications in 2020/21).

We cover a very varied area of urban, rural and coastal locations which in itself provides a number of exciting and diverse planning challenges.  We stretch from a boundary with the City of York across the Yorkshire Wolds (which are currently being considered for AONB status), to the chalk sea cliffs at Flamborough Head down to Spurn Point and adjoining the City of Hull.

We can offer a wide variety of experience in terms of application types and locations and excellent training opportunities with a planning authority that is nationally recognised and respected.  Duties include managing a large and varied caseload of planning applications and pre-application enquiries, which may include a mix of minor and major proposals for housing, employment, tourism, agricultural and infrastructure developments.

The council is based in the beautiful market town of Beverley which is a great place to live and work and we look forward to hearing from you.  In return we can offer benefits including the Local Government Pension Scheme, paid professional subscriptions, support for CPD and other training opportunities together with discounted gym membership and the possibility of a relocation package.  We also operate a blended working approach and flexible working hours together with a mix of office and home working to suit the needs of the business and employees.

Hours: 37 hours per week.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is pursuing equality of opportunity in employment.
