“West Lancashire has a diverse economy with market towns, small villages and thriving commercial areas nestled alongside rural countryside.
“The Borough offers a wide contrast between open farmland and small picturesque villages together with the larger vibrant market towns of Burscough and Ormskirk. Our largest town Skelmersdale is a hive of urban activity, combining thriving business districts, central and local shopping centres with plenty of green spaces and surrounding woodlands.
“An exciting opportunity has arisen for a skilled professional to join the Council working in our in our small, but supportive, Legal and Member Services team.
“We are looking to recruit an experienced and proactive planning solicitor to deal with a range of planning matters including planning application advice, certificate of lawful use, planning enforcement and appeals and Community Infrastructure Levy/Planning Obligation matters”.
