An exciting opportunity has arisen to lead the Council’s teams that discharge the Council’s statutory responsibilities as a Minerals and Waste Planning Authority. This is one of the key leadership roles in the Minerals, Waste & Environment (MWE) Service Stream of the Economy, Transport and Environment (ETE) Department of the County Council. The postholder will report to, and deputise for, the Assistant Director, and a key person on the MWE service stream management team.
You will be responsible for setting the County Council’s strategic vision and direction for the Minerals and Waste Policy and Development Management Services and ensuring the highest quality outcomes. This will include completion of the review of Hampshire's own Minerals & Waste Plan initiated in 2021. You will also need to be commercially aware in order to further develop the commercial aspects of the teams’ work such as consultancy roles for other authorities and regional networks. As well as working collaboratively with colleagues internally and externally on Departmental and Corporate initiatives.
