Senior Planning Policy Officer (Infrastructure)

£33,437 - £36,379 a year

37 hours a week

Permanent Contract

The Planning Policy Teams at Lewes District and Eastbourne Borough Councils have recently merged, and we have appointed a new Head of Planning and Planning Policy Lead. We are now recruiting to the other posts that form part of the restructure to ensure we have a full complement of staff to deal with the work programmes across both Councils.

Now is an exciting time to join the Councils and be part of a forward thinking work environment that offers a high degree of professional growth across two Council areas each offering unique challenges and opportunities.

We are looking for a suitable candidate who wishes to become part of the Eastbourne and Lewes Councils joint Planning Policy team. The team is tasked with preparing, monitoring, reviewing and influencing the plans and strategies that direct and influence development and change in Lewes district and Eastbourne Borough. The team also undertakes the implementation of the two Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Charging Schedules, which have been operational over 17 months for Lewes District Council and 2 years for Eastbourne Borough Council.

This role will lead on the implementation of CIL and Section 106 monitoring for both Councils. This includes overseeing the day to day processing of planning permissions for income collection and managing any CIL Regulation reviews and appeals. The role will play a key part in administrating the CIL governance for each council and includes holding responsibility for the CIL bidding process and spending arrangements.

The position also leads on areas of research and development proposals for planning policy and the delivery of infrastructure to support development plans.

Lewes District Council and Eastbourne Borough Council have agreed to integrate staff and services in order to provide more flexible, customer focussed and cost-effective services, which includes a new ICT strategy to support flexible working practices. Joint working has already begun across a number of Council functions and areas of work including planning policy. There will therefore be an expectation for the appointed officers to work across both authorities.

The closing date for the receipt of applications is noon Friday 2 June 2017

Interviews to be held on Monday 12 June 2017
