About The Role

Are you a skilled and competent planner with experience in handling complex and major planning applications?

Great Yarmouth Borough Council is seeking a Principal Planning Officer to join our team. In this pivotal role, you’ll play a key part in shaping the future development of our vibrant community.

Great Yarmouth is at the heart of a multi-billion-pound clean energy revolution as the closest place in the country for UK offshore energy sector growth.

Our inspiring programme of regeneration includes the recently announced rejuvenation of the historic Winter Gardens, a new waterfront development at North Quay and improvements to our historic marketplace.  In addition, Great Yarmouth will become a university town in 2024 and will see the completion of an operations and maintenance campus which will support the offshore energy sector.   The Borough will also benefit from a brand-new hospital and major housing and employment developments.

With these strategic projects and issues as diverse as economic regeneration, housing need, coastal change, internationally protected habitats and flood risk, Great Yarmouth is the perfect place for a planner to get experience of unique and interesting planning applications and other casework. 

Now is an exciting time to join the Great Yarmouth Borough Council as a Principal Planning Officer. The Council has recently become one of the first local authorities in the country to adopt a Borough-wide Design Code which is already helping to improve the quality of design in the area.  A new Local Plan is under preparation and there will be an opportunity to contribute to this and help deliver it. Additionally, new modern planning software is on the horizon which will help streamline our processes and enable us to deliver high-quality customer service.

Closing date: 28th July 2024
 
Interview date: w/c 19th August 2024
 
If you would like to have an informal discussion about the role, please contact Rob Parkinson, Development Manager on 01493846175.

They must have a degree or equivalent qualification in subject of relevance to town planning (such as town planning, geography, environmental science, architecture, law, economics, sociology etc) and eligible to be a full chartered member of the RTPI.
