Principal Planning Officer – Spatial Planning (Development Planning Team)

The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham are currently recruiting to their Planning Service and seeking a Principal Planning Officer for Development Planning to join their team. Based in central London, in the heart of an industrial growth and regeneration plan, this exciting opportunity will be not be found elsewhere. 

As one of our Principal Planning Officers for Development Planning you’ll use your high-level plan making skills to deliver regeneration across the borough. You’ll ensure growth and regeneration is delivered through the expression and communication of our spatial strategy, through the Hammersmith & Fulham Local Plan and associated documents. 

You’ll work on planmaking and spatial planning projects across Hammersmith & Fulham, ensuring that your projects keep within budget and that potential variances are flagged in the correct way. As well as strong planning experience, you’ll be competent in articulating spatial, visual and aesthetic concepts and conducting primary research, analysing, interpreting and summarising large amounts of information.

We’ll look to you to promote customer satisfaction with the work your team are doing, ensuring communities are engaged with the Local Plan for the borough. As part of this you’ll sometimes be required to attend evening and weekend events. 

As a senior planning professional, you’ll use your expertise in the field to lead and manage your team, ensuring all members are given the opportunity to grow and excel in their work. 


To achieve our goals, we’re looking for highly ambitious, dedicated planners to join us. Our team share our positivity towards bettering our communities through great developments and delivering regeneration that benefits all. You’ll be driven by the chance to really make a difference.

Our projects are some of the most innovative and exciting in London - we therefore need people who are proactive and creative in the face of a challenge and are motivated by the search for a solution. 


We have restructured our Planning service to combine Regeneration, Planning, Economic Development and Housing. The shared service will enable more joined up working between the separate teams and ensure that we are all working towards the same goal - to make our borough the best place to do business in Europe. We have a strong reputation for taking on big projects and are excited for our future. 

Working in Hammersmith & Fulham, you’ll join a group of people dedicated to achieving great things. This is a culture in which our managers take a hands-on, involved approach with their teams. We’re also dedicated to your professional development, holding internal training and regular one-to-one meetings and appraisals. We believe in nurturing our own talent and those who want to progress have the opportunity to do so. 

In June we’ll be moving to brand new offices in Central Hammersmith. Mobile technology and modern spaces will transform the way we work collaboratively. We’ll be based within 10 minutes’ walk from Hammersmith tube station, a stone’s throw away from the many shops, cafes and bars in the area.

Closing Date: 17th June 2019 12:00am
