The Planning Applications Team is working hard to maintain high performance levels. As a result of a continued high volume of applications and internal secondment we are looking to recruit a new Assistant Planner post within the team. The position is based in the district of Stratford-on-Avon whose boundaries extend into the Cotswolds AONB and the West Midlands Green Belt and contain a significant number of Conservation Areas and Listed Buildings. You will deal with a caseload focussed on householder applications and other types of minor applications including, lawful development certificates, advertisements, agricultural notifications and prior approvals. You will be expected to show enthusiasm, drive and a high level of personal organisational skills to manage a large volume of simpler applications. You will have contact with District Councillors, parish councils and members of the public so good customer skills are also essential. You will ideally hold a post graduate qualification in planning or a related field or be about to graduate. Or alternatively you will have experience of working within a development management team.
