Principal Planning Officer (Major Applications)

Salary Range:         £38,902 - £43,520 + £2,000 car allowance +

                                £3,000 golden hello

Hours:                     37 per week

Contract:                 Permanent

The Borough of Surrey Heath is diverse and in addition to urban and town locations contains countryside and rural settlements, conservation areas, green belt land, sites of nature conservation and land liable to flood. This is an exciting yet challenging time for the Council with significant regeneration opportunities earmarked in Camberley Town Centre.

Your principal responsibility will be to process major and strategic applications and you should have the experience to lead extensive pre-application discussions and hard negotiations on complex issues.  You will be expected to prepare sound planning reports and present applications to the Planning Applications Committee and answer detailed enquiries; and, as the need arises, have the necessary experience to represent the Council on appeal including at a hearing or public inquiry.

With sound time and project management skills to determine planning applications in a timely and effective manner, and the confidence to take day to day decisions without referral to the Team Leader, you will have the organisational ability to meet statutory targets and deadlines and manage your own caseload of applications.

You may also be expected to support and deputise for the Team Leader.  IT literate, highly organised and an effective team worker, you will require a full valid driving licence.

Benefits include a minimum of 25 days annual leave, Local Government Pension Scheme, free parking and lifestyle rewards benefits.

For an informal discussion about this role, please contact Jonathan Partington on telephone number 01276 707296.
