This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in delivering the infrastructure that the community needs. This role is to ensure the growing portfolio of Section 106 planning agreements and the financial contributions received from developers will continue to be well managed into the future.

  • monitoring development progress across the District,

  • working with key partners to ensure the Infrastructure is delivered on the ground.

Ideally, you will be a member of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), or eligible for early membership.
