Job Details

Hart district, in rural north-east Hampshire, is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the UK. 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Chartered Planner with a high degree of planning policy knowledge and experience.

As part of a small, friendly team you will be involved in a range of work including neighbourhood plans and supplementary guidance. The timing of this opportunity means you will help drive the next local plan from the outset, and help Hart deliver on the proposed planning reforms.  You will therefore play a key role in shaping the future of a district where planning issues are high on the agenda.

Hart is committed to supporting and developing all their staff and creating a culture that is inclusive, innovative and enjoyable and they support their staff in maintaining a good work life balance.  We have just adopted a new Agile Working Policy.  Hart offers an excellent package of benefits which include for this post:

  • A generous leave entitlement
  • Excellent working environment
  • Flexible working arrangements and ability to accrue up to 2 days additional leave per month and new Agile Working Policy (remote working);
  • Commitment to a good work life balance
  • Support for continuous professional development
  • Payment for one set of Professional fees
  • Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Confidential Employee Advice and Support Programme
  • Free car parking



Planning is firmly at the heart of the Council’s vision to 2040 and we’re consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the UK. 

We're a small local authority with big ambition. We want to do things bigger, bolder, and better than we have before. Our Council is small enough for you to be able to see the direct impact and influence you can have through your day-to-day work and know the names of your colleagues. You will also notice that you get to see the faces of our Senior Leadership and Chief Executives on a regular basis. 

At Hart, we work together to shape the environment for the people in our district and we listen to suggestions and contributions from staff at all levels to improve the way we do this.   

We’re the place to grow your planning career, come and see for yourself how we empower and develop our staff. The work we have at Hart is diverse and challenging, you can develop your skills and work as part of a friendly and committed team.
