We're working with a local authority based in Dorset to help them recruit for a town planning development management team leader. As the team leader you'll be responsible for allocating and reviewing casework and making recommendations on the complex planning applications and cases. You will need to have a good understanding of town planning regulations and legislative frameworks to ensure that applications are compliant with requirements. 

You may need to act as the senior expert witness, representing the council in planning appeals and inquiries in order to defend decisions regarding application approvals and denials.  You will need to present applications to the planning committee to help them in their decision making. 

To be considered for this role you will need a degree in town planning, or a related degree, as well as to be a member ( or eligible for membership) in the Royal Town Planning Institute. Management or team lead experience will also be required for this role, if you have worked in a senior position and wish to move into a team lead role then please get in touch. 

This role is paying a competitive rate, it's inside IR35 and our client is able to conduct interviews on short notice. If you are interested in this opportunity then please get in touch with a copy of your CV, I'll call you once I have received your application and we can talk through the role further. 

This role can be done remotely but you may need to undertake site visits on occasion. Even if you aren't based locally this role is still worth applying for.
