Senior/Principal Planning Officer
We are currently working with a local authority in the Oxfordshire area, who are looking to take on a Senior to Principal Planner for a 6-month contract, but this is likely to roll on for another 3-6 months beyond this. This role will involve assisting the team with incoming complex and diverse planning applications. This position will involve working on applications for larger schemes, as well as complex applications, pre-application negotiations, post determination work and presenting the council’s case at appeals. It is possible to work compressed hour for this placement, and we can discuss further flexible working arrangements, such as home working. This would be a great opportunity for a local planner looking for their next contract position, or for a Senior/Principal Officer to work on larger applications. Successful candidates for this role will have acquired practical experience as a Planner in Development Management with a proven track record of processing applications, with a Town Planning related degree or diploma, and excellent written and communication skills.
