Folkestone & Hythe District Council have an ambitious development agenda and are looking to expand our planning team to help us deliver our ambitions.
Our district is a dynamic and innovative place to live, work and visit. While our modern offices are based in the heart of Folkestone, with easy access to transport links, local shops, entertainment facilities and the seafront, we have an agile working culture that supports and encourages flexible and home working where possible outside of our team office days. Recognised by Best Companies as an outstanding organisation to work for, we have a real focus on staff engagement, health & wellbeing and staff development, and offer an excellent benefits package that includes corporate membership and reward schemes, Employee Assistance Programme and access to the Local Government Pension Scheme.
Our mission is to create a world class quality environment that will stand the test of time whether relating to a householder extension or one of our exciting and ambitious projects such as the proposed garden town at Otterpool Park and regeneration plans for the Town Centre, Harbour and Seafront.
We are looking for dynamic, creative, driven individuals with good people skills who want to make a difference and help shape our district.
In return, we can offer you the environment to thrive, develop and make a lasting impact on Folkestone and its surrounding areas.

The closing date for receipt of completed applications is 12.00pm on Monday 5th September 2022.
