Vibrant Borough Seeks Vibrant Planning Officer

Do you want to be a Planning Officer and earn £25,951 – £27,668 per annum in West Lancashire which, according to WLBC “Lies at the heart of the North West of England, located within easy reach of major cities such as Manchester and Liverpool, as well as the wonderful countryside of both the Lake District and Peak District National Parks”? If you do, look no further than Derby Street Towers, who need you!

“The Borough has a wonderful mix of vibrant towns [yet to be identified] and picturesque villages and boasts some of the most attractive and productive countryside in the UK. The Borough has a growing economy, is home to a top-class University and is a desirable place to live but over 90% is designated as Green Belt, so the Planning Service of West Lancashire Borough Council plays a vital role in balancing the economic and social aspirations of our communities with protecting our environment for future generations.

“The team is currently reviewing its Local Plan in order to make the most of local development opportunities. As such, you will be responsible for providing professional assistance primarily in the Strategic Planning and Implementation Team, but also within other teams in the Development and Regeneration Directorate as required.

“Main duties will include preparing local planning policy and evidence base documents, implementing the Local Plan and other local planning policy documents and developing strategies and other initiatives in relation to the environment, leisure, tourism, transport, infrastructure planning, housing, regeneration and economic development.

“A planning qualification and planning experience, together with high level communication and negotiation skills, good organisational skills and knowledge of legislative and national policy requirements are essential for this role. If this is you, what are you waiting for? For an informal discussion about this role, please contact Peter Richards at WLBC”. But hurry, there are two candidates already
