This role provides an opportunity to either start a career within Planning or develop your existing skills.  You will enjoy the challenge of working within a good spirited, high performing, bustling team, handling a varied case load of planning applications, enquiries and related matters.

Benefits include:    

  • Smarter Flexible Working and newly modernisation office accommodation
  • 22-24 days leave plus an additional 5 days for 5 years local authority continuous service.
