This is an exciting time for the District - our Local Plan is currently at examination and due for adoption later in 2019. You will be responsible for implementing the policies and proposals in the Local Plan bringing forward development and infrastructure on Strategic sites and across a new garden communities project at Harlow and Gilston Garden Town.
This will include managing the recently formed Implementation Team working on master planning and securing quality sustainable design outcomes. The post provides an exciting opportunity for candidates from either the public sector or private sector. Candidates should be politically aware and be comfortable leading complex negotiations. You will need to have excellent communication and engagement skills and relevant planning experience.
